Board of Zoning Appeals

About

The Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) is the local government body that is empowered by State Law to consider granting relief from the requirements of the Town’s zoning ordinance. The BZA’s duties fall into three categories:

  1. Granting of variances; a. Developmental standards variances; and b. Variances of use 
  2. Granting of special exceptions/conditional uses; and  
  3. Appeals from administrative decisions. 

The board is comprised of five members. Three citizen members are appointed by the Mayor, one of whom must be a member of the Plan Commission. One citizen member is appointed by the Town Council and this appointment must not be a member of the Plan Commission. One member is appointed by the Plan Commission from the Plan Commission’s citizen members. The members must consist of three members from the Rural District and two members from the Urban District. Term of service is four years.
