The May 26 Town Council work session will be held remotely and can be view on the Town's Facebook page starting at 6 p.m. 

The Board of Adjustment is an appointed body, authorized under Article 19, Chapter 160A of the North Carolina General Statutes, that hears and decides appeals from any order, decision, requirement or interpretation made by the land-use administrator or other administrative officials in carrying out or enforcing any provisions of the Town of Garner Unified Development Ordinance (UDO), and to hear and decide applicants for special use permits, special exceptions and variances.  The Planning Department serves as staff advisor.  

The Board of Adjustment usually meets the fourth Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers located at 900 7th Ave. In the event of a holiday, the meeting is moved to the third Thursday of the month. The board is composed of five members plus two alternates. Four regular members and one alternate must reside inside the Garner Town Limits and the remaining regular member and alternate must reside outside of the Town limits but within Wake County.
