The Board of Adjustment is a citizen panel that reviews requests for special exceptions and variances. The Board also considers appeals when there is a disagreement about an administrative decision made by the City. Members of the board act like judges, making decisions about individual properties and uses that may have difficulty meeting a specific zoning regulation or to resolve disputes about administrative zoning decisions. The Board is assisted in its work by planning staff and the City Attorney’s office. Decisions made by the Board of Adjustment are binding upon all parties unless overturned upon appeal to District Court.
