Planning Board and Board of Adjustment Openings
The Town of Franklin Planning Board and Board of Adjustment have two openings for town residents to serve both boards. One opening is for a full board member and the other is for an alternate. There is a combined membership as both boards are served by the same seven members. The alternate position would serve as a board member when one or more of the regularly appointed members are absent, creating a lack of a quorum. The individuals must be a resident of the Town of Franklin, living within the town limits.
The Planning Board meets on the third Monday each month at 4:00 p.m. and makes recommendations to the Town Board for zoning changes, zoning map changes, wording changes for the zoning and sign ordinances, various other projects involving planning for the Town of Franklin area. This position pays $50 monthly.
The Board of Adjustment is scheduled to meet at 4:00 p.m. on the second Monday of each month at the Town Hall Boardroom. This Board meets to consider variances and appeals to decisions regarding Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). If there is no business brought forward the meeting is cancelled.
Individuals interested please contact Derek Roland, Town Planner at 828-349-1274 or write to Town of Franklin, P.O. Box 1479, Franklin, NC 28744. The positions will be open until filled.
