This Board is a quasi-judicial Board established for the purpose of reviewing requests for certain specifically-defined variances from the regulations of each Zoning District as they relate to area, size of structures, yards and open spaces, heights, etc. (They cannot rule on any variance involving the specified use of land.) They are governed by strict adherence to certain criteria as defined within the Zoning Code relating to land hardship. This Board also rules on any appeal of a decision made by the Zoning Official wherein it is alleged the interpretation of the Zoning Code is in error.
This is a 5-member Board (plus 1 alternate member) that meets on the fourth Thursday of each month, as needed. The only appeal to their rulings is the Circuit Court. Financial disclosure is required.
