Mission Statement

The members of the Town of Cary Planning and Zoning Board shall exercise their statutory authority as granted by the General Statutes of North Carolina and by the Town of Cary Code of Ordinances and Land Development Ordinance, in an objective and timely manner to provide advice to the Town Council related to long-range planning, zoning, and related development matters.

Life Span Statement 

The Planning and Zoning Board is a standing board, which meets monthly. Board members will reexamine their purpose every three years beginning in 2013.

Powers and Duties 

The Planning and Zoning Board is an advisory body to the Town Council and deals with land use, zoning and development issues. In addition to attending monthly Planning and Zoning Board meetings, these board members are also expected to attend public hearings on plans, rezonings and ordinance amendments held jointly with the Town Council. 

Membership

The Planning and Zoning Board consists of 9 members appointed by the Town Council, one of whom the Town Council designates as chairperson. Eight members are appointed from within Cary's corporate limits and 1 member is appointed from the Town's extraterritorial jurisdiction. All appointments to the board are for three-year terms, except where unexpired terms are being filled.

Meetings

The board meets monthly at 6:30 p.m., in the Council chambers, 316 N. Academy St., Cary. Meetings can last up to 4 hours, and requires an occasional work session that can last up to 2 hours, as well as site visits and plan reviews. Members are also expected to attend numerous community meetings and joint meetings with Town Council during the preparation of land use plans, zoning ordinance amendments and other special projects. 

All meetings are open to the public. Visit Town's Web calendar to confirm meeting dates, times, and locations. View the meeting on the Town's YouTube channel or on the Town's website
