Planning Commission: The Town of Kiawah Island Planning Commission consists of seven members appointed by Mayor with the consent of Town Council. The Commission reviews subdivision plats and makes recommendations to Council on rezoning cases, and prepares and revises periodically plans and programs for the development of the Town. The Commission also makes recommendations to Town Council on such issues as zoning ordinances, regulations for the subdivision or development of land, and other matters related to the development. Members serve a four-year term.
Board of Zoning Appeals: The Town of Kiawah Island Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) consists of seven members who are also appointed by Mayor with the consent of Town Council. The Board hears and decides appeals for variance from the requirements of the zoning ordinance when strict application of the ordinance would result in unnecessary hardship. The Board also makes decisions regarding the permitting of uses by special exception subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Town’s Zoning Ordinance. This Board also hears and decides appeals where it is alleged there is error in order, requirement, decision, or determination made by an administrative official in the enforcement of the Town’s Zoning Ordinance. Members serve a three year term.
