(v) 919-217-2241 / (f) 919-217-2249
By completing and signing this application, the applicant hereby requests the Land Use Review Board (LURB) to vary or
modify the specified regulations and/or provisions of the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) due to special conditions
or unnecessary hardships as outlined on Page 2 of this application. The submittal of this application authorizes the Town of
Knightdale to enter onto the property in order to conduct a site inspection and to post the property in accordance with the
Town's public notification requirements. At the hearing, an individual applicant may give testimony themselves and present
evidence from experts that they have gathered; however, if the applicant desires to have experts speak during the hearing or
the applicant is a corporate entity, an attorney representing the applicant must be in attendance.
APPLICANT INFORMATION (if different from above - authorized agent, lessee or contract purchaser):
A super-majority vote of four-fifths (4/5) of the voting members of the LURB is required to approve any request for
variance. In all matters before the Board, the applicant shall have the burden of providing clear, competent and material
evidence in support of the application. The Board may prescribe appropriate conditions and safeguards in conformity with
the UDO when granting a variance. Unless otherwise authorized by the LURB and included in its decision to grant a
variance, an order of the Board in granting a variance shall expire if a building permit or Certificate of Occupancy (for a use for
which a building permit is not required) has not been obtained within one (1) year from the date of the decision.
It is hereby acknowledged that the following items are NOT cause for a variance to be granted:
* The request for a particular use expressly, or by inference, prohibited in the District involved.
* Hardship resulting from personal circumstances.
* Hardship resulting from conditions that are common to the neighborhood or the general public.
* Any request that will cause a structure to be in violation of other Federal, State, or local laws, regulations or ordinances.
* Any request within any designated floodway or non-encroachment area where the variance would result in any increase
in flood levels during the base flood discharge.
