Board of Adjustment

The Board of Adjustment/Board of Appeals is a legally-constituted group in a city that functions in a quasi-judicial role. The Board of Adjustment is meant to be a safety valve for the zoning regulations to ensure that no undue or unnecessary hardship results from the proper enforcement of such regulations on any particular property within the jurisdiction of the board. The Board of Appeals will hear and decide orders, decisions, or determinations made by the building official regarding the application and interpretation of the building regulations.

To submit a case for the Board of Adjustment/Appeals to review, please fill out and submit an application (PDF).
