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).

Can I file a case even if the office is closed?
Yes. To file a case with us, please email the following to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once the cashier gets in touch with you and receives payment, your case will be filed.
When will my case be heard?
The Board of Adjustment has moved to holding fully virtual hearings to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Hearings will be hosted through Zoom, with all Board members, City staff, and Appellants attending virtually. Please see the Information Sheet for hearing policies, and please visit the Current Docket page for the link to attend the hearings.
We are currently scheduling hearings 5-8 weeks out between filing a case and going to hearing. We schedule on a first come first served basis, so this can change depending on our case load, but is a good initial estaimate.
1. Action you're appealing (Typically an Order to Cease and Desist or an Informal Denial)
2. Our application (Available here)
3. A copy of your plans
4. The name and phone number of the person responsible for the filing fee. We do not take payment directly, but we will have the cashier get in touch with them to get the payment processed.
Once the filing fee is paid, the application is officially filed and we will work on getting a hearing scheduled. .
