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.
