The Town of Mayodan is responsible for zoning and land subdivision regulation inside the corporate limits and also within a one-mile Extra-Territorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) boundary.  The ETJ extends from the original Town Boundaries not from newly annexed areas near the NC 135/US 220 intersection.

The Zoning Board is a recommending body made up of individuals that live either in-town or within the ETJ boundaries.  The board meetings are held every month on the 3rd Thursday at 7:00pm, as needed.  The meetings are held in the Mayodan Council Chambers in Town Hall.

The Zoning Board also acts as the Board of Adjustment that hears quasi-judicial appeals of the zoning official (Town Manager) or variances of the Zoning Ordinance.
