City Hall
  • Volunteers sought for ARB, ZBA openings

  • Jun 3 2018

The City of Goose Creek is seeking to fill vacancies on its Architectural Review Board and Zoning Board of Appeals.

If you are interested in serving as a volunteer on the ARB or the Zoning Board of Appeals, please email your resumé to City Clerk Kelly Lovette.

Both the ARB and ZBA are seven-member, volunteer boards appointed by the Mayor and Goose Creek City Council. Board members must reside within City limits. Volunteers are needed for two ARB vacancies and one ZBA vacancy.

By approving applications for commercial development, the ARB plays a crucial role in keeping Goose Creek attractive to residents and businesses. The board ensures that any changes within City limits are compatible with the design guidelines set forth in Goose Creek’s zoning ordinance.

The ARB meets at 6:30 p.m. every third Monday of the month at City Hall. Attendance at other special meetings and workshops may be required. In addition to availability for meetings, ideal candidates will have a civic interest and general knowledge of the City, and be able make independent judgments. Residents with knowledge of or interest in architecture, landscape architecture or urban design are preferred, but not required.

The ZBA meets on an as-needed basis at City Hall. The board is responsible for determining conditional use permits, zoning ordinance variance requests, and appeals of decisions made by the zoning administrator.

For more information, please contact City Planning Director Kara Browder at 797-6220, ext. 1118.
