Variances
Municipal Code: Chapter 32
The Board of Adjustment is authorized to grant variances from area and related requirements of the Zoning Code in cases of practical difficulties or unnecessary hardship. When a plan not conforming to Zoning regulations is presented for a Building Permit, the application for the permit will be processed and automatically denied. The applicant will be informed of the denial and receive information concerning the exact nature of the nonconformances.

Appeals to the Board of Adjustment must be filed in the City Secretary's Office within 30 days of the Building Permit denial. The City Secretary will schedule a hearing of the appeal and provide appropriate public notice.

Fees for variance applications are governed by City Ordinance.
