VARIANCE –  The City’s principal means of controlling land use is the zoning ordinance, which divides the City into different districts. The individual districts determine lot size, building height, building and parking setbacks, required parking and various other standards. The Board of Adjustment may grant a variance from these requirements, when the applicant can demonstrate that practical difficulties exist due to circumstances unique to the property.
