Board of Adjustment/Appeal Authority
What is the Board of Adjustment?
The Alpine City Board of Adjustment is a body created to act in a quasi-judicial manner to (1) hear and decide variances from the terms of the land use ordinances, and (2) hear and decide appeals from land use decisions applying or interpreting the land use ordinances. The Board of Adjustment may not grant a use variance.
Who are the members of the Board?
The Board of Adjustment consists of five members who are residents of Alpine City. Members are appointed by the Mayor, with the advice and consent of the City Council. There are also two alternate members who can sit as members of the Board in the temporary absences of a regular member. Each member and alternate member serves for a term of five years.
What is a variance?
Any person or entity desiring a waiver or modification of the requirements of a land use ordinance may apply to the Board of Adjustment for a variance from the terms of the ordinance. For example, a person may want to build a structure closer to his property line than allowed by the land use ordinance. This person may apply to the Board of Adjustment for a variance to build the structure closer to the property line. Variances are governed by state law which outlines the criteria that must be met for a variance to be granted. Variances run with the land.
