Planning Board

The Planning Board is an Advisory Board that serves at the discretion of the Council.  The Board meets monthly on the third Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Village Hall. The Board is charged with developing and maintaining a cooperative planning program to benefit the residents of the Village of Marvin. The duties of the Board relate directly to planning and land development. The Board provides recommendations to the Council in accordance with, and/or with regard to, ordinances, land use plan, NC Statutes on Planning & Development, Public Involvement Meeting comments, and staff recommendations.  The Board reviews text and zoning amendments and makes recommendations to the Council.  Currently there is one vacant seat on the Planning Board.

Parks, Recreation and Greenways Board

The PR&G Board is an advisory board that meets the first Tuesday of each month at 9 a.m. at the Village Hall.  The Board is charged with the design of park and greenway systems that can be embraced by every member of Marvin’s diverse community; including members of our rural community, our equestrian community and our subdivision communities. The Board uses the Village’s Parks & Greenways Master Plan to steer the parks and greenway progress. In addition, members of this Board work with the Village Staff to assist with current events, or create new community events that will bring Marvin citizens together for fun community affairs. Board members will sometimes work with the Village’s Planning Board on issues of land planning. Ultimately, this Board’s objective will be to promote recreation and advance a park and greenway system that every Marvin citizen can enjoy.  Currently, there is one vacant seat on the PRG Board.

Board of Adjustment

The Board of Adjustment is a quasi-judicial board that interprets Village ordinances and policies for unique situations or special cases related to the Village Zoning Ordinance. The Board hears requests for variances and appeals to decisions made by the Zoning Administrator.  The Board meets infrequently on an 'as needed' basis.  Currently, there are two vacant seats on the Board of Adjustment.
