Special Meeting Reminder

Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) Meeting on October 16

At the Sept. 20, 2017 Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) meeting, the BZA made and approved a motion to defer the entire Sept. 20 agenda to a special meeting on Oct. 16. The deferral was requested to allow time for County staff to mail out meeting notices for each BZA case to adjacent property owners.
