About the Board
The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) is responsible for determining conditional use permits, zoning ordinance variance requests, and appeals of decisions made by the zoning administrator. A conditional use permit is typically applicable when a property owner wishes to have a specific type of development approved for a specific location. Zoning variances can be requested when a property owner feels that, due to unusual circumstances, a zoning restriction causes what is referred to as an "unnecessary hardship" and the situation meets the specific criteria set for such. An appeal may be made when a property owner feels the zoning administrator has incorrectly interpreted the zoning ordinance.
In all cases, an application to be heard is submitted to the Planning Department, and the ZBA schedules a public hearing to determine the facts and make their determination for the situation. Because they meet only when an application has been submitted, their meeting schedule is only as needed. For more specific information regarding the process for requesting an appeal, a variance, or a conditional use permit, please contact the Planning Department at (843) 797-6220, ext. 1116.
