In June 2023, the Board of County Commissioners approved Ordinance No. 2023-013 amending Section 3.04 of the Land Development Code that established the Planning & Zoning Board (PZB). This update reduced the amount of at-large members on the PZB from five to one. The existing at-large member appointments will expire on December 31, 2023.
At this time, the Board is seeking a volunteer to fill the single at-large position for a 3-year term beginning January 1, 2024.
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.
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.
