The criteria for the Board’s Decision are established in the Land Management Ordinance (Chapter 19) of the City Code. A Staff Report will provide an analysis of the Applicant’s request with regard to its context, any related City plans and ordinances, and the specific decision criteria. Staff will present its conclusion to the Board on whether the request satisfies the criteria and may recommend stipulations to the Board for its consideration in granting the request. The criteria for granting Special Exceptions and Variances may be found in Sections 19-2.3.5 and 19-2.3.7, respectively (Code of Ordinances, www.greenvillesc.gov).
The Board will usually vote to grant or deny an application immediately after it considers the evidence and public testimony; however, it may decide to continue the hearing or postpone deliberation to a future date. After the Board votes to grant or deny an application, Staff will prepare a written Decision for mailing to the Applicant. Anyone having a substantial interest affected by the Decision may appeal to the Greenville County Circuit Court within thirty (30) days of the mailing of the Decision.
