Board of Zoning Appeals

The essential purpose of zoning is to control community development by regulating land use. Zoning refers to the legal restrictions placed on the use of private land. These restrictions specify how the land may be used; i.e., what kinds of buildings may be built, what activities are permissible, how much yard space there must be, etc. 

The Board of Zoning Appeals acts on questions arising from the administration of the zoning ordinance, including the interpretation of the zoning map. The board hears and decides appeals from and reviews any order, requirement, decision or determination made by the building official.

Please note that agendas for this board are usually posted the week prior to the meeting date.  If you would like details of an upcoming application before the full agenda is posted to this page, please go to www.bhamgov.org/publicnotices for a list of upcoming development applications and public hearings.
