Planning and Zoning

Pineville Planning and Zoning Department responds to the questions and concerns of property owners, residents, and town officials regarding the development and use of land.  Planning and Zoning Department staff work on a variety of issues including the day-to day enforcement and compliance of town ordinances, creating policies on community growth, and developing long-range planning goals for a sustainable future.  The department also provides assistance to the Planning Board, Board of Adjustment and Town Council for issues related to re-zonings, zoning text amendments, subdivision regulations, variances, land use plans, and similar activities.
