The Board of Adjustment is responsible for hearing appeals of the Zoning Enforcement Officer or other duly authorized official and issuing variances from the terms of the Zoning Ordinance, as provided in both the City Zoning Ordinance and G.S. 160A-388.
The Board of Adjustment is a seven member board, five of which are the acting City Council members who represent the City's Corporate limits. The remaining two positions are appointed by Alamance and Orange County Commissioners as representatives of the extraterritorial jurisdiction. Meetings are held in conjunction with the City Council meeting on the first Monday of the month, at 6:00 P.M. in the Council Chambers of the Mebane Municipal Building at 106 E. Washington Street. In the event that a City observed holiday falls on the first Monday the meeting will be held the following Monday.
