BOARD OF ADJUSTMENTS

The Construction Board of Appeals will consider building code variances only for those projects that have been reviewed and disapproved by the Building Official or Floodplain Administrator.  The application may be made when the enforcement thereof would do manifest injustice and would be contrary to the spirit and purpose of this and other technical codes adopted by the City.
