Rezoning Process

P&Z Home >Current Planning >Rezoning Process
Rezoning is the process of changing the Zoning on a parcel of land from one classification to another. The process normally involves having a pre-application meeting with County Staff to discuss the application and try to resolve any issues at the front end of the process. Next would be submitting a rezoning application, which if complete will be sent out for review by County and State agencies, there is a 30 day review time. After review if there are no outstanding issues the application will be advertized and sent to the Planning Commission, where it will be discussed and open for public comment. The Planning Commission has up to 100 days to act on the application, after which it will be forwarded to the Board of Supervisors with the Planning Commissions recommendation of approval or denial. The Board will then review and discuss the application and it will again be open for public comment. The Board also has 100 days to act on the application.  After which time the application will either be approved and a change in the  Zoning of the parcel(s) will occur or the application will be denied and the Zoning would remain the same.

You can find further information on the Rezoning Procedure in the Rezoning Process Information Sheet along with the Application in the Document Library.
