Board of Zoning Appeals

The Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) is a quasi-judicial board whose decisions may be disputed by the losing party via judicial review; neither the Advisory Plan Commission nor the county executive has the authority to review such decisions. The BZA is responsible for adjudicating the following:

  • Disputes over the interpretation of land-use ordinances
  • Special-exception requests
  • Contingent/conditional uses
  • Variances
  • Administrative appeals

The BZA meets at 6:00p.m. ET on the fourth Monday of each odd-numbered month (on Tuesday if a holiday falls on the fourth Monday), in the Commissioners’ Room in the Courthouse. Public hearings may be scheduled, as needed, for the same time on the fourth Monday of even-numbered months.
