Conditional Zoning Applications
The conditional zoning (CZ) process typically takes a minimum of four (4) months and on average, six (6) months. Due to requirements for a community meeting, TIA evaluation, NCDOT review (when applicable), plan review, etc. the timing of the CZ process is complex. Upon submission of a complete application, staff will coordinate with the applicant(s) to establish a board review schedule. The CZ review process is detailed in Chapter 12 of the Land Development Code.
