Guide to the Zoning Board of Appeals

The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) is a five-member citizen board organized under the zoning ordinance to hear several types of zoning issues:

  • Request for changes in zoning classification (map amendments)
  • Permission for certain uses under zoning named as special uses in the zoning ordinance
  • Request for relief from specific requirements of the ordinance through variance requests
  • Appeal of a determination made by the director of building and zoning

A citizen may apply for a public hearing, pay a filing fee, and present his/her case to the ZBA. In some instances, the ZBA makes a final decision on the request, but in most instances, the ZBA makes a recommendation to the full County Board for their final consideration.
