Variances

In certain situations, a literal enforcement of the provisions of the Zoning Ordinance will result in unnecessary hardship on a piece of property.  In these cases a hearing before the Board of Adjustment (B.O.A.) may be warranted as a means to provide relief for such hardships.  A property hardship is one that is due to, and resulting from the shape, size, or terrain that exists on a piece of property.  Financial or self-imposed hardships do not quality for variance consideration by the Board.  All requests for a variance must be accompanied by:

  • 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
