What is the Board of Adjustment?
It is an independent appeals board for the zoning enforcement division of Neighborhood Inspection Services and the Zoning Administration. It handles cases in which citizens object to Orders to Cease and Desist or Denials of permit applications, or other actions taken under the City’s Zoning Ordinance, and grants permits with Special Exception Review (ZPSE).
 
No. City Council decided it would be better to have reviews of Zoning actions done by a completely separate agency.
 
 
What are the names and phone numbers of those sitting on the Board?
The composition of the Board can change from year to year. The Office is not authorized to give out their personal phone numbers and it is inappropriate to contact a Board member prior to the hearing. Any concerns may be addressed to the Office staff.
