Board of Adjustment

Overview
The Board of Adjustment is a group of seven residents appointed by the Town Council to hear appeals of zoning code interpretations by the Zoning Administrator and variance requests.  They may grant variances from, and exceptions to, the strict application of the Zoning Ordinance if a hardship exists as outlined in State statutes and the Zoning Ordinance.  Since the Board is quasi-judicial, a person aggrieved by a decision of the Board, may bring a special action lawsuit in the Maricopa County Superior Court– appeals are not to the Town Council. Further, as a quasi-judicial board, they are limited in their contact with applicants and residents on specific cases before the Board.
Applications include: 
  • Additional height on homes or accessory structures
  • Deviations on required setbacks for all structures
  • Additional Floor Area on lots
  • Appeal of staff’s interpretation of the Zoning Ordinance
