Body                     

COUNCIL DISTRICTS IMPACTED: City-wide

 

 

 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

The Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA) is a quasi-judicial body that hears and decides variances, appeals and special exceptions to the Zoning Ordinance. Their decisions are final, but can be appealed to District Court or County Court at Law. The ZBA consists of 5 regular members and 4 alternate members serving two-year staggered terms. Alternate members serve as needed, such as when a regular member is unavailable, because most items considered by the ZBA can only be approved by a super-majority vote.

 

The City Secretary’s Office accepted applications from January 19, 2021 to March 26, 2021. During that time frame the City Secretary’s Office received 8 qualified applicants:

 

                     Lynn Norvell (Alternate Incumbent)

                     Katharina Perez

                     Drew Snider

                     John Coker (Incumbent)

                     Cynthia Foster (Incumbent)

                     Angela Keresztury

                     David Lerch (Alternate Incumbent)

                     Jenny Wilson
