About the Board

The Board of Appeals also known as the Zoning Board of Appeals, assists in the administration of the city’s zoning ordinance by:
  • Reviewing decisions of the building inspector
  • Approving conditional uses
  • Granting variances
The board functions in a quasi-judicial capacity and members must be able to hold public hearings, make findings of fact and conclusions of law based upon applicable state and local zoning laws, and issue written decisions setting forth their findings and conclusions.
