Board of Adjustments

The Board of Adjustments consists of five members, as prescribed by the Missouri Revised State Statutes. The Board handles all applications received requesting variance to the planning and zoning regulations, or an appeal of a decision of the city administrative enforcement staff.

The Board of Adjustments meets not less than 15 days after a publicized legal notification of an application. The findings of the Board of Adjustments can only be overturned by a circuit judicial court.
