The Board of Adjustment was established for the purposes of hearing and deciding appeals regarding decisions or determinations made by the Building and Zoning Administrator in the enforcement of the Zoning Code. Subsequently, if the Administrator's literal translation of the Code is determined to have resulted in an unnecessary or undue hardship, the Board of Adjustment has the authority to grant certain variances within specific guidelines. The board consists of 5 members who possess the technical, professional, financial, business or administrative skills necessary to accomplish the work of the board. Meetings are generally held on the last Wednesday of each month, at 1:30 p.m., in the City Commission Chambers. The board is supported by the Department of Neighborhood and Development Services, with Gretchen Schneider assigned as Contact Person, she can be reached at 365-2200, ext. 4355.
