Board Responsibilities

The Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) is made up of five citizens who are appointed by Town Council. The main role of the BZA is to hear variance applications relative to the Town of Vinton's Zoning Ordinance.

A variance request is typically made when a property owner feels that the strict application of the Zoning Ordinance will create a unique and undue hardship on how he or she intends to use the property. View more details on the variance process.

The BZA also has the authority to hear and decide appeals from any order, requirement, decision, or determination made by the zoning administrator or any other administrative officer in the administration or enforcement of the Vinton Zoning Ordinance. Additionally, the BZA has the authority to grant special exceptions from the Vinton Zoning Ordinance.
