The Board of Zoning Appeals hears certain appeals of denials of building permits by the City's Plans Review and Inspections Department. An applicant can request a variance from the Zoning Code requirements or can appeal an administrative official’s interpretation of the Zoning Code.

The deadline for filing applications to the Board of Zoning Appeals is typically the third Monday of each month for the meeting that will be held on the third Thursday of the following month.  The full schedule of deadlines and fees can be found online here. 

Decisions of the Board of Zoning Appeals can be appealed to City Council within 15 days of the Board's decision. Appeals of a City Council decision related to Board of Zoning Appeals are made to Chancery Court.
