Meeting Minutes


The Blowing Rock Planning Board consist of nine members, eight of which are appointed by the Town Board, and shall reside within the town limits. One member is appointed by Watauga County Board of Commissioners and shall reside within that portion of the town's extraterritorial planning area that lies within Watauga County. Board members are appointed for three year staggered terms, but members may continue to serve until their successors have been appointed.

The Planning Board meets the third Thursday of each month and is only an advisory Board to the Town Council. The Board obtains necessary information and promotes the full and free exchange of ideas. All board meetings are open to the public.

The Planning Board makes studies and recommendations to the Town Council regarding plans, goals and objectives relating to the growth, development and redevelopment of the town and the surrounding extraterritorial planning area. Along with this, they are responsible for developing and recommending pollicies, ordinances, procedures, and other means for carrying out plans in a coordinated and efficient manner. The Planning Board also makes recommendations concerning proposed Conditional Use Permits and proposed Zoning Map changes to the Town Council.

The Planning Board acts as the Watershed Review Board on proposed plats and land subdivisions, and hears major and minor variance requests related to subdivisions within the designated Water Supply Watersheds.
