Appointed by the City Council, the Board of Adjustment has the power to grant:
Variances. To authorize upon appeal in specific cases such variance from the terms of the Zoning Property Development Regulations and Sign Ordinance as will not be contrary to the public interest, where owing to special conditions, a literal enforcement of the provision of the Zoning Regulations will result in unnecessary hardship, and so that the spirit of the Zoning Regulations shall be observed and substantial justice done. See Section 5.600.
Administrative Appeals. To hear and decide appeals where it is alleged that there is error in any order, requirement, decision or determination made by an administrative official in the enforcement of the Zoning Regulations. See Section 5.700.
Historic Review Board Appeals. To hear and decide appeals where the applicant disagrees with a ruling provided by the Historic Review Board.
The board meetings are scheduled ONLY when an application is received.
