Board of Adjustment

Objective

The Board of Adjustment is a statutory body comprised of five regular members and three alternate members. It is a quasi-judicial body with jurisdiction to hear and decide appeals of determinations made by the Building Official, special exceptions to the terms of the Zoning Ordinance and special exceptions to the terms of the Sign Ordinance. All meetings are open public hearings.

 
Public Hearings

The Board of Adjustment (B.O.A.) meets the fourth Tuesday of the month in the City Council Chambers of City Hall, 3800 University Blvd. Occasionally, depending on workload, B.O.A. will meet more than or less than once a month. The Board holds public hearings to consider requests for variances to the University Park Zoning Ordinance and appeals to decisions made by the Community Development Department.

All requests must be accompanied by the following:

  • A completed application
  • Two complete sets of project plans (24x36) and one complete set of project plans (11x17)
  • Electronic version of complete set of plans. Flash drive is acceptable. Content and type of plans will be determined by staff after preliminary project review
  • $150 filing fee

Once the application and submittal have been determined to be in accordance with City requirements, the request will be placed on the next available B.O.A. Agenda and an advertisement of public hearing will be made. Filing deadlines are 30 days prior to the meeting date. This information is contained in the meeting schedule.
