Board of Zoning Appeals

The Board of Zoning Appeals is a 5-member body responsible for hearing appeals from individuals who are requesting exceptions or variations for City Ordinances in regard to land use and building requirements or from individuals who are questioning the appropriateness of orders made by City officials.

It is the Board’s goal to treat all individuals fairly and courteously. Each appeal is heard and decided on its own merit. The Board of Zoning Appeals may be limited in their authority, if any, to grant a variance from the Zoning Code. Listed below are answers to commonly asked questions regarding the Board of Zoning Appeals.
