The Board of Adjustment (BOA) provides flexibility to the city zoning ordinance while maintaining the intent of the regulations. The BOA is required by state law and acts in a quasi-judicial role, much like a judge in a court, to evaluate and interpret questions which come about concerning the zoning ordinance. The BOA provides several roles in the overall zoning process including: appeals of any administrative officer; providing decisions concerning the zoning ordinance or map when a disagreement over an interpretation occurs between an administrative officer and a member of the public, granting special use permits; requiring that certain land uses meet conditions beyond general zoning requirements on a given parcel, and granting variances; to grant relief when hardship results from the strict application of the ordinance’s terms to a particular piece of property.
