Apply to Serve on a Board or Committee

The Town of Leland is looking for residents who are community-minded to get involved with their local government by serving on a Board or Committee. Serving as a member of a Board or Committee presents opportunities for the public to become more involved with issues that affect the community and make a difference in their Town.

Currently, there are vacancies on the Economic Development Committee, the Planning Board, and the Board of Adjustment. The deadline for applications is Friday, May 27 at 5 p.m. Information about each advisory group and how to apply is below.

Economic Development Committee

The Economic Development Committee was created to establish and oversee activities of the Town’s economic development program and assist the Town Council in implementing economic development initiatives in Leland. The committee consists of seven members and meets the second Thursday of each month. Committee members serve two-year terms.

Apply to serve on the Economic Development Committee through the Town’s government portal.

Planning Board

The Planning Board is charged with making planning and land use policy recommendations to the Town Council, including changes to the zoning map and code of ordinances. It is advised by staff on the best practices for planning and zoning to reach adopted policy and plan goals. The Board consists of seven members and meets the fourth Tuesday of each month. Board members serve three-year terms.

Apply to serve on the Planning Board through the Town’s government portal.

Board of Adjustment

The Board of Adjustment holds quasi-judicial public hearings to consider requests for variances from land use regulations where special conditions would create unnecessary hardships. The Board of Adjustment also hears appeals of determinations made by staff in interpreting and enforcing land use regulations. It consists of five members and two alternates and meets on an as-needed basis. Board members serve three-year terms.

Apply to serve on the Board of Adjustment by filling out this form. Completed applications should be emailed to Town Clerk Sabrena Reinhardt at sreinhardt@townofleland.com.
