Planning Commission | Board of Adjustment


The Planning Commission is an advisory body made up of nine (9) members appointed by the Mount Holly City Council. Eight of the nine members reside in the city, and one member represents the Extra-Territorial Jurisdiction (ETJ). The Commission reviews and makes recommendations to the City Council on amendments to the Zoning Ordinance, Conditional Use Permits, major development plans, rezoning requests, conditional zoning requests, Comprehensive Plan amendments, and small area plans.

Staff provides administrative support to the Zoning Board of Adjustment, which hears Zoning Appeal cases, Variances, and provides final interpretations of the City's Zoning Ordinance. The Board of Adjustment also resides over Special-Use Permit applications, involving quasi-judicial, public-hearing process. Members of the Zoning Board of Adjustment also serve on the Planning Commission.

The Planning Commission and Zoning Board of Adjustment meet each month on the first Monday of the month at 6:30 PM in the Council Chambers of the Municipal Complex at 400 E. Central Avenue.
