Board of Adjustment


The Board of Adjustment hears and decides appeals when an applicant requests an exception to the Unified Development Code. This board is unique in that, unlike the other city boards and commissions, its decisions are final. No recommendations are made for the City Council to act upon. Appeals of board decisions are referred to the Circuit Court of Jackson County.

Established by Municipal Code Section 402.030

On April 18, 2022 the City Council adopted Rules of Procedure for each of the City's Boards and Commissions.  The Rules of Procedure for the Board of Adjustment can be viewed here. Rules of Procedure Board of Adjustment


Meetings are held at the call of the Chair.  Board of Adjustment meetings are typically held on the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m.
