List of Town of Weaverville Boards and Committees
Alcoholic Beverages Control Board
Pursuant to North Carolina law the Weaverville ABC Board is appointed by Town Council. The board’s mission is to control the sale of spirituous liquor and promote a customer-friendly, modern, and efficient store. This board serves to set policy and adopt rules in conformity with North Carolina’s laws and rules regarding the sale of alcoholic beverages. This board consists of three members that are appointed by Town Council.
Animal Control Appeals Board
The Animal Control Appeals Board hears and decides appeals from determinations made by the animal control officer. The board of adjustment serves as the Town’s Animal Control Appeals Board, so there are direct appointments to this board.
Economic Development Advisory Committee
The Economic Development Advisory Committee was created to study impediments to business development, make recommendations concerning economic development opportunities, and to assist the Town in its strategic goal to “promote diverse economic development in keeping with the Town’s residential character and the environment.” Membership is largely based on interest and a willingness to serve, which provides for diversity of perspectives and viewpoints. The Mayor is actively involved with this board.
Planning and Zoning Board
The Planning Board is generally responsible for advising Town Council on matters pertaining to land use and planning issues. Code amendment related to development regulations and zoning map amendments cannot be considered by Town Council without first receiving a recommendation from the Planning Board. This board also reviews development applications for compliance with subdivision standards and conditional zoning district applications for reasonableness and consistency with the Town’s adopted comprehensive land use plan. This board is required by law and must be comprised of residents of the Town. Town Council appoints all members to this board which consists of five regular members and up to two alternates.
Residents’ Patriotic Activities Committee
The Residents’ Patriotic Activities Committee advises Town Council and staff on the patriotic events within the Town and coordinates the scheduling and programming of those events such as Memorial Day, Patriot’s Day and Veteran’s Day. Community members selected by the Mayor serve alongside the Mayor and Town Manager on this committee.
Board of Adjustment
Under North Carolina law, the Town is required to have a board of adjustment. The Town’s Board of Adjustment consists of five members and up to two alternates, all of whom must be residents of the Town. The Board of Adjustment almost exclusively does its work by hearing and making quasi-judicial decisions on matters such as variance requests, special use permits, and appeals from the zoning administrator.
