Board of Zoning Appeals

Application Filing Process

Applications to bring appeals, special use exceptions, and variances before the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) must be filed with the zoning administrator before the close of business on the date specified in the meeting schedule, as the deadline for applications (30 days before a scheduled meeting date).

Fees & Filed Petitions
A fee of $500 per request is due upon filing of an application. Notice of the appeal, special exception, or variance is published during the two weeks prior to a regular meeting. If the number of petitions filed exceeds a number that the BZA may consider during one meeting, a second meeting may be scheduled on the next Thursday for the consideration of the additional cases.
