A rezoning is the reclassification of the zoning for one or more pieces of property. A rezoning is a legislative process that must be heard before both the Planning Board and the Board of Commissioners.
The Planning Board is the advisory board that conducts a thorough review of the request before making a recommendation to the Board of Commissioners.
Once the Planning Board has made a recommendation concerning the rezoning request a hearing will be scheduled before the Board of Commissioners.
The Board of Commissioners has the final approval authority for rezoning cases.
