The Variance application is the procedure to request relief from a dimensional standard within the Zoning Ordinance based on a hardship with a property or an exceptional circumstance related to the use of the property. It is not considered a right or special privilege, but it may be granted after meeting specific criteria. Variance applications require a Pre-Application Meeting with the Planning Team and may be eligible to be reviewed administratively by the Planning Team or may require review by the Planning & Zoning Commission.
