Board Responsibilities

Duties and responsibilities of the Board of Adjustment include hearing requests for variances and special exceptions to the City’s Zoning Ordinance. As authorized by local ordinance and State law, the Board has the power to:

  • Decide special exceptions pursuant to the terms and intent of the ordinance
  • Grant such variances that are not contrary to the public interest and where literal enforcement of the provisions of the ordinance would result in an unnecessary hardship

Time Commitment

The Board of Adjustment meets once a month on an as needed basis with the typical meeting length of one hour. In addition to the monthly meetings, the Board of Adjustment may be required to attend a joint meeting with the City Council and Planning and Zoning Commission should there be a subject matter pertaining to the Board being discussed. For additional information, see the Planning Department or Building Inspections.
