Board of Zoning Appeals

The Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) consists of five electors of the city, appointed by City Council to serve for a term of three years. This decision-making board hears and determines appeals from the refusal of building permits and to permit exceptions to and variations from the zoning regulations in individual cases, as may be required to afford justice and avoid unreasonable hardship to property owners. Standards for the board’s decisions are established by City Council.

Third Wednesday of each month at 6:30 PM when there are cases to be heard
