Duties


The Board of Adjustment hears and decides appeals and variances. The Board of Adjustment has the power to authorize variances from the terms of the ordinance as will not be contrary to the public interest when, owing to special conditions, a literal enforcement of the provisions of the ordinance would result in unnecessary and undue hardship. In order to authorize any variance from zoning ordinances or regulations, the Board must find that certain conditions exist, according to specific requirements set forth in the Code of Ordinances. The Board of Adjustment hears appeals when it is alleged that there is an error in any order, requirement, decision or determination made by an administrative official in the enforcement of any zoning ordinance or regulation.
