    Board of Zoning Appeals
    More info about Board

    The Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) represents one step in the process of securing approval of a variance in the City's Zoning regulations. The process begins when an applicant for a building permit submits plans with the city's Plans Review and Inspections Division. If plans are rejected by reason of not complying with the city's Zoning Ordinance, an applicant can appeal the denial to the BZA for one of two reasons:

  • The applicant can request a variance of codes, or
  • The denial represents an error in interpretation of City Code.
