Albemarle County is required to post public hearing notices on properties which are the subject of an application for certain actions that need Planning Commission, Board of Supervisors, or Board of Zoning Appeals review. The purpose of this page is to help you find out what might be going on related to a public notice sign you have seen, or a project you have heard about.
Search the Zoning Notice Search Database
The Zoning Notice Search database (link above) contains information on all Zoning Map Amendment (aka Rezoning) and Special Use Permit applications that have been submitted to the County for review as well as Variances and Appeals heard by the Board of Zoning Appeals. If the item you are interested in is not listed, please contact Community Development for more information.
This information is updated weekly in our continuing efforts to provide the most comprehensive, up-to-date information to our customers.
Once in the database you can click the underlined project name to view more detailed information, including any scheduled Work sessions, or Public Hearing for the Planning Commission, Board of Supervisors or Board of Zoning Appeals. Some projects may have multiple sign numbers, however the information listed for each sign is identical.
Please let us know if you experience difficulties or if you have any questions, suggestions or problems with the system itself. Inquiries about the sign information should be directed to the staff person listed for a particular item or to the Community Development Department. (See link above)
