ORANGE COUNTY, NC (May 19, 2016) – One major way citizens can have a positive impact on the future of Orange County is to volunteer to serve on the various advisory boards and commissions.  Currently there is an opening on the Orange County Board of Adjustment.

The Orange County Board of Adjustment hears and decides all appeals from and reviews any decisions made by the Zoning Officer, as well as matters required to pass by the Zoning Ordinance.  It also hears and makes decisions upon applications for Special Uses that require the Board’s approval.  Currently there is an opening for an At-Large Alternate position.  An alternate has all the powers and duties of a regular member when necessary for the Board to conduct business in the absence of a regular member.

If interested, apply at .

Orange County strives for diversity on volunteer advisory boards.  Minorities are encouraged to apply.  Applicants must reside in Orange County.  Volunteers appointed by the Board of County Commissioners have an opportunity to influence the way of life in Orange County.

For additional information call Thom Freeman 919-245-2125.
