The City of San Antonio is seeking applicants to serve as alternates on the Zoning Board of Adjustment (BOA). This board hears and decides appeals where it is alleged there is error in any order, requirement, decision or determination made by an administrative official in the enforcement of the Unified Development Code (UDC), Chapter 35 of the San Antonio, Texas Code of Ordinances.
Positions will be open until Friday, May 30, 2014 and applications are available at https://webapps2.sanantonio.gov/BoardComm/Vacancies.aspx. Interested applicants may obtain more information about the Board of Adjustment at http://www.sanantonio.gov/dsd/zoning.asp#Board_of_Adjustment.
The board may also authorize variances from the provisions of the UDC, where evidence presented supports findings that literal enforcement would result in an unnecessary hardship, and the spirit of the ordinance will be observed. The board functions as a quasi-judicial board and its members are prohibited from discussions about pending cases outside of the formal meeting.
Meetings are generally held on the first and third Mondays at 1p.m. and typically last two hours. Members are compensated $20 for each seated meeting.
For additional information, call the City of San Antonio Board of Adjustment staff at 210-207-8208 or 210-207-8214.
