Board of Adjustments & Appeals

The Board of Adjustment and Appeals is a five member board appointed by the City Council to review and decide upon zoning issues and requests that may arise. When zoning rules appear to be in conflict or extraordinary conditions exist, the board has the authority to review the issue and render a binding decision. Decisions made by the board can only be appealed to the District Court, not the City Council. This is done to insure that impartial decisions are rendered, free from any political pressure. Variance requests, Special Exception Use Permits, and Administrative Review fall under the authority of the board. The Board of Adjustments and Appeals meets in public hearings as needed, and members serve a five-year term.
