The Zoning Board of Appeals conducts public hearings related to the following:

  • Hear and decide appeals of administrative decisions where it is alleged that there is an error in any order, requirement, decision, or determination made by an administrative official in the interpretation or enforcement of this Code.
  • Grant variances to the zoning dimensional regulations and development regulations of this Code where specifically authorized, when special conditions exist. The purpose is to provide for a procedure to modify the terms of this Code where literal enforcement of the requirements would result in an unnecessary hardship. It is intended that all modifications, or variances, granted shall not be contrary to the public interest.
  • Grant Special Exceptions for home occupations in accordance with the requirements of Section 51.03 of this Code.
