The Board of Zoning Adjustment is a quasi-judicial board of five appointed members that hears applications for variances and special exceptions from the zoning ordinance, as well as appeals of administrative decisions. When making a decision concerning an application, the BZA takes into consideration the recommendations of the Office of Planning (OOP) staff and the Neighborhood Planning Unit (NPU) as well as testimony given at hearings.
