The Board of Zoning Appeals is a citizen board created as a result of the adoption of the zoning ordinance. The board functions in a "quasi-judicial" fashion to grant relief to specific zoning requirements. They exist by state legislation allowing cities to regulate land use through zoning. The decision process in granting variances is regulated by the local zoning ordinance.  Other duties of this board include hearing appeals to administrative interpretation of the zoning ordinance and exceptions as listed in the ordinance. Apply for a variance.
