Boards and Committees

BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT

The Vance County Zoning Board of Adjustment is a quasi-judicial board appointed by the Vance County Commissioners.  A quasi-judicial hearing is similar to a court hearing in that decisions are based on evidence and factual testimony rather than opinions.  The Board’s responsibilities include granting variances, granting conditional use permits, and hearing appeals from decisions or interpretations made by the zoning administrators.

This Board meets the second Thursday of each month at 4:00 p.m. in the Commissioners meeting room (122 Young Street) unless otherwise noted.  2017 schedule available here.

Technical Review Committee (TRC)

The purpose of the Technical Review Committee (TRC) is to bring key players from various county departments as well as the City of Henderson and utility providers together in a meeting to discuss issues related to development and the plan review process.  The Technical Review Committee is composed of various members of the Planning, Health, Economic Development, Emergency 911, Soil and Water Conservation, Sheriff, and Fire Departments as well as the Vance County Schools and North Carolina Department of Transportation Division 5.  Most development, including major subdivisions, and construction plans are reviewed by the TRC.  Upon submittal of a plan to the Planning Department, the plans are distributed to each entity prior to being reviewed by the Planning Board.  Upon review of a plan by the TRC, a comprehensive set of staff review comments are created for the Planning Board.
