Zoning Board of Appeals

A Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) hears appeals, evaluates requests for interpretations and approves or denies dimensional and use variances. Variances related to setbacks, building heights, parking requirements and sidewalks are examples of typical requests.  If the Board approves a variance, it shall remain in effect only as long as the facts and circumstances, as presented, continue to exist and conditions attached to the approval are satisfied and maintained. If the variance is not exercised within 12 months from the date it was granted, the variance shall lapse.

The ZBA meets the third Thursday of the month as needed. ZBA applications are available at city hall and online. The meeting will be scheduled as soon as possible based on when the application is submitted and public hearing requirements. Prior to the meeting, the city clerk is required by law to notify all property owners within a 300 foot radius of the property subject to appeal and publish a notification of appeal in the local newspaper of record.
