The Board of Adjustments was established in accordance with the provisions of Texas Local Government Code, Section 211.008, Board of Adjustment. Under this chapter, the board shall perform the following functions:
Hear and decide appeals where it is alleged there is error in any order, requirement, decision or determination made by an administrative official in the enforcement of this section;
Hear and decide appeals of any interpretation of the text of this chapter made by the zoning official;
Authorize in specific cases such variances from the terms of this section as will not be contrary to the public interest, where, owing to special conditions, a literal enforcement of the provisions of this section will result in unnecessary hardship, and so that the spirit of this section shall be observed and substantial justice done; and,
Hear and decide special exceptions to the terms of the zoning ordinance when this chapter requires the board to do so.
If you have any interest in serving on the Board, please contact our City Secretary for more information at 281-337-6217.
