Solar Arrays

Solar Arrays are a Conditional Use, Chapter 18:1-95.S, and require approval by the Board of Appeals.  

The process requires first that a Concept Plan (Special Application) be submitted for review by the Staff Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) and an approval and recommendation by the Planning Commission.  If granted a favorable recommendation, the application may proceed to the Board of Appeals.

Solar Arrays are only permitted in the Agricultural (AG) and Countryside (CS) zoning districts, and in some types of deed restricted open space.
