Occasionally, proposed construction does not comply with zoning ordinance requirements, such as setbacks, and a variance must be approved before a permit can be issued. 

Variance requests are heard and decided by the Planning and Zoning CommissionVariance applications and Owner's Authorization, if needed, must be submitted according to the submission schedule to allow sufficient time for required advertising and for staff analysis and preparation of a report.

For additional information about applying for a variance, refer to the variance application information and checklist. The fee for a variance request to be heard by the Planning and Zoning Commission is specified on the schedule of fees.
