The Board of Zoning Appeals is a citizen-based body that considers and makes decisions regarding:
- Appeals of the City's actions in administering the Land Development Code
- Variances from the specific requirements of the Land Development Code
A variance is a waiver from compliance with a specific provision of the zoning regulations that may be granted to a property owner by the Board of Zoning Appeals when practical difficulties or unnecessary hardship would occur from strict application of the Land Development Code.
The Board of Zoning Appeals meets on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chambers when an application is initiated. Please contact the Business & Economic Development Department at 913-856-0913 to find out if a meeting is scheduled. All meetings are open to the public.
