The Pitt County Board of Adjustment will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, July 23, 2019, at or after 5:30pm regarding a proposed Variance request. This hearing will be held in the Eugene James Auditorium in the County Administration Building located at 1717 W. 5th Street, Greenville, NC.
The Pitt County Planning Department is in receipt of a petition from James and Crystal Barnes requesting a variance from the minimum front building setback as required by Table 6-1 of the Pitt County Zoning Ordinance. The subject property is identified by the Tax Assessor’s Office as Parcel Number 67412, and is located at 1447 Canter Way in Hunters Run Subdivision in the Ayden Township.

The public hearing will be held using quasi-judicial procedures. The purpose of the hearing is to establish facts related to the variance request prior to consideration by the Board of Adjustment, not to gather opinions about the desirability or popularity of the request. Those persons wishing to speak to the Board shall be considered witnesses and shall provide testimony under oath. Testimony must be supported by substantial, competent, and material evidence. Cross examination of witnesses is permitted. Please be aware that members of the Board of Adjustment may not discuss particulars of the case with any party outside of the public hearing.
