Staff Directory


Variance requests are usually for relief from setback, lot coverage and building height requirements. The hardship must relate to special circumstances or conditions that are unique to the property and must not be purely economic or self imposed.

Application for a variance is made through the Building Inspection Division, 834-6012. The deadline is the 5th day of the month. The case will be heard by the ZBAA the first Tuesday of the month following receipt of the application.
