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


Meeting are held on the second Wednesday of each month on an as-needed basis. The meetings are located in the Council Chambers at the Howard L. Brown Public Safety Building, 1100 SW Smith St., at 6:30 p.m.
