Planning, Building & Zoning
Zoning Board of Appeals jointly with the Special Use Hearing Officer
The Zoning Board consists of seven citizens of the County appointed by the County Board. All members must reside within the unincorporated area of the County. The ZBA receives Zoning Map Amendment applications as well as A-1 Conditional Use requests for residential houses from the PBZ Department along with the recommendation made by the Plan Commission. The ZBA will make Findings of Fact for the Planning, Building and Zoning Committee for these applications as well as proposed Text Amendments. In addition to a recommending body, the ZBA will review and have final action on all zoning Variance requests. The Zoning Board will also hear and determine appeals from, and review any order, requirement, decision, or determination, made by the Zoning Administrator charged with the enforcement of the Zoning Ordinance.
