The Board of Zoning Appeals assists in the administration of this Zoning Code, specifically to hear and decide applications for exceptions to and variances from the strict letter of the Zoning Code and Residential Code.
The Board is established to provide a method for alleviating practical difficulty or unnecessary hardship by allowing a reasonable use for individual parcels of property utilizing the standards and guidelines as established by Council. Additionally, the Board is authorized to hear appeals of any order or decision made by the Building Commissioner, administrative official or agency in regard to the zoning ordinances, giving due deference to a public official's exercise of discretionary powers and duties.
