The Planning & Zoning Board reviews all requests for rezoning of property, zoning amendments, Comprehensive Plan text amendments, Land Use Map amendments, and amendments to Ordinances that affect the use and development of land. The Board submits written recommendations on these matters and submits them to the Board of County Commissioners for a final determination. The Board also hears appeals where it is alleged that there is an error in a decision made by the Planning Director or staff, as it relates to Zoning Codes or the Comprehensive Plan. The Board also comments on preliminary site plans and serves as the Local Planning Agency for Nassau County.
The Board is made of up 11 members as follows:
- Five County Commission District representatives (one for each district)
- Five At-Large Representatives
- One School Board Representative
Meetings are held on the first and third Tuesday of the month beginning at 6:00 p.m. Members serve three (3) year terms and are required to file a financial disclosure. Board members are provided a stipend of $75 per meeting and are reimbursed for mileage at rates set by the Federal General Services Administration.
If you reside in District 2 and are interested in serving, please submit a resume to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, January 14, 2022. Resumes will be provided to the Board of County Commissioners and will be considered at a Board meeting in late January. If selected, you will be notified in writing and scheduled for an orientation soon thereafter.
