An Administrative Variation can reduce any setback requirement by 25 percent, not to exceed 5 feet. Any other variation permitted by the Zoning Ordinance is processed as a Non-Administrative Variance.
An Administrative Variance is a simple process requiring review and approval from neighboring property owners and City staff. See the Administrative Variation Application (PDF) for more information.
A Non-Administrative Variance requires a public hearing before the Planning and Zoning Board and review and approval by the City Council. See the Non-Administrative Variation Application (PDF) for more information.
