Development Permits and Appeals Board

The Development Permits and Appeals Board is responsible for holding public hearings to receive testimony on applications for Development Permits and Variances to Chapter 18 of the City Code. Development Permits approve specific site layouts for a property based on guidance provided through the approval of a Conceptual Site Plan by City Council. A Variance is a request to grant an exception to or variation from the zoning regulations when there are practical difficulties or unnecessary hardships in carrying out the provisions of Chapter 18 of the City Code. The Development Permits and Appeals Board also hears appeals as provided for in the City Code. Projects brought before the Development Permits and Appeals Board include both residential and commercial developments.
