A property variance is required for certain uses and structures that would otherwise be prohibited because they don’t fit in with the existing ordinance requirements. This can include requirements for lot size or minimum setback distances. In many cases, special use permits enable allowances such as a home business in a residential area.

Both variances and special use permits are used to protect the community’s integrity and the value of the neighboring properties. Our team can help you navigate the process of requesting and obtaining a property variance or special use permit.
