Zoning Board of Adjustments
About the Zoning Board of Adjustments
The Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA) is a City Council-appointed, quasi-judicial board that considers appeals in zoning matters and may recommend granting special exemptions or variances for non-conforming land uses. The Board is comprised of citizen appointees: five regular members and two alternates. 

The Zoning Board of Adjustments schedules appeals within a reasonable time, and notifies the public at least 10 days prior to a hearing. Property owners located within 200 feet of the property on which the appeal is made are mailed hearing notices. 


The Zoning Board of Adjustments meets when requests for variances are submitted. Once an application is submitted, the Planning Department schedules a meeting.  ZBA Meetings are typically held on a Thursday at 5:30 p.m. in the Wright Room at the Harris Community Center.
