Pittsboro, NC - On May 18, the Chatham County Board of Commissioners will be creating a Board of Adjustment that will assume the role of hearing and deciding upon appeals and variances of county land use and development regulations. The county has received several applications, but needs some from the western part of the county. The extended deadline to apply is by 8 am on Monday, May 11, 2015.

The county is most in need of applicants from Commissioner Districts 4 and 5, which cover most of western Chatham. There are a total of seven seats, with one assigned to each of the five commissioner districts and two at-large members who will serve as alternates. All applicants should live outside town limits, but can live in the towns' extraterritorial jurisdictions (called ETJs).

To determine the county commissioner district assigned to your residence and to apply for the Board of Adjustment, visit and use the Quick Links box at the top of the page to find Board & Committee Application option. You also may call the Board of Elections at 919-545-8500 to verify your commissioner district.

The Board of Adjustment typically only meets two or three times a year in Pittsboro.

If you have questions about the role of the Board of Adjustment, contact Jason Sullivan at 919-542-8233 or
