Zoning Board of Appeals

  • About the Board

    The Zoning Board of Appeals is a quasi-judicial board which reviews requests for Variations from the provisions of the Zoning Ordinance when a property has a unique hardship, and is also used to appeal interpretations made by the City’s Zoning Administrator. Because the Board is quasi-judicial, in many circumstances its decisions are not subject to the review of the City Council.

    The Board consists of seven members that are appointed by the Mayor with the approval of the City Council.  Each member is appointed to a five-year term.
