The Board of Zoning Adjustment sits as a quasi-judicial body to hear applications for variance(s) from the requirements of the Zoning Ordinance and/or the interpretation of the Ordinance by the Planning Division staff. The Board consists of seven members. Each Council Person has one appointment to the Board of Adjustment. Applications to the Board are administered by the Planning Division staff. The applications are reviewed, and an analysis and recommendation is prepared for the Board. The application is then heard at a public hearing at which time the Board will hear speakers and render a decision. All decisions are final. Any appeals from a Board of Zoning Adjustment decision are made to Circuit Court.
