PURPOSE:

The Zoning Board of Adjustment reviews applications regarding criteria for granting of special exceptions, conditional use permits, or variances. The Board also decides citizen’s appeals of orders, requirements, decisions, or determinations made by Planning & Development Staff. The Zoning Board of Adjustment hears cases given by applicants and decides whether the request should be granted based on the criteria set forth in the Marion Zoning Regulations (Chapter 176) . As a quasi-judicial body, decisions of the Board are final. They do not go on to the City Council. Appeals of Board decisions can be appealed only to the District Court within 30 days of the decision.

ABOUT THE BOARD:
