Zoning Board of Adjustments

Boards Responsibilities

Duties and responsibilities of the Board of Adjustment include hearing requests for variances and special exceptions to the City’s zoning ordinance. As authorized by local ordinance and state law, the board has the power to:

  • Decide special exceptions pursuant to the terms and intent of the ordinance.
  • Grant such variances that are not contrary to the public interest and where literal enforcement of the provisions of the ordinance would result in an unnecessary hardship.


The Zoning Board of Adjustment is comprised of five regular members and two alternate members. The City Council serves as the Zoning Board of Adjustment with the Mayor and Planning and Zoning chairman as alternate.
