Board of Adjustment

The Board of Adjustment is a quasi-judicial board made up of five citizens appointed by the County Board of Supervisors, who reside in the unincorporated area of the county. The Board hears and makes the final decision of appeals, which are questions between an applicant and the zoning administrator as to the proper interpretation of the zoning ordinance. They also decide on applications for special exceptions as specifically provided in the Zoning Ordinance. The Board also may authorize variances in the application of the Ordinance where there are unusual circumstances that would otherwise result in unnecessary hardship (physical, not economic) to a particular parcel of land if the Ordinance is literally enforced, and the variance would not be contrary to the public interest.
