Zoning Board of Appeals
The Zoning Board of Appeals is charged with hearing requests that do not meet certain Zoning Chapter requirements. The Zoning Board of Appeals reviews exception permits and variation requests. Exception permits may involve the location of air conditioning units, swimming pools, or barbecues. Variations include the location and size of accessory buildings and structures, lot coverage by buildings or impermeable surfaces, floor area ratios, yard requirements, off-street parking, commercial vehicle parking, and substandard lots.
The Legal and Community Development Departments provide staff advisors, and the Community Development Deputy Director serves as an ex-officio Commission member. The Zoning Board of Appeals is a final hearing body, with only specific types of appeals requiring Village Board action. There are nine members on the Zoning Board of Appeals, each serving a four-year term. The meeting are usually held on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. in the Village Council Chamber.
