Board of Adjustment

The Board of Adjustment is a quasi-judicial board consisting of seven regular members and a number of alternates appointed by the Board of Commissioners.

Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of every month at
12 noon — 30 Valley Street, Asheville

Board members are private citizens and do not receive compensation for their service. The Board of Adjustment rules on Zoning Variances, Conditional Uses, and appeals to decisions of the Zoning Administrator.

As the Board is quasi-judicial, Board members may only consider sworn testimony and evidence presented at the hearing. No ex-parte communication is permitted and no member is allowed to discuss the case or gather evidence outside of the hearing.

Additionally, citizens wishing to speak for or against a specific case will be sworn in prior to testifying, and should be prepared to present evidence to the Board for the record. Evidence can include, but is not limited to photographs, presentations, posters, studies, and other pertinent items.
