Administrative Variance Case Status Descriptions

The Planning director may grant an administrative variance from any building setback requirement. This is an administrative process; however, the request will be advertised in local newspapers, sign posted and notice of request will be sent to adjacent property owners.

Application Review [App Review]

The first stage of the process, application review, occurs after a complete application has been submitted along with associated fees and supporting documents. Once the Planning Department accepts the application a case manager and case number are assigned. Additional documentation regarding the request may be submitted for consideration prior to the final report.

Anticipated Final Date [Anticip Date]

The director will approve or disapprove the application not less than 90 days after the date of the submission of the application. The anticipated final date will be scheduled 60 days after the date of submission of the application to provide for required notifications and staff examination the request. Should concerns or opposition arise during this part of the process, the anticipated final date could be moved out an additional 30 days to allow for further examination. Once a determination has been made, you will be sent written notice of the director’s decision.
