Variance Application Process

Variances allow for the departure from the strict application of the requirements outlined in an ordinance. If it is deemed that the strict enforcement of the Land Development Regulations would result in substantial or excessive difficulties, hardships, or injustices, the Planning Commission may modify such requirements so that the applicant is allowed to develop his or her property in a reasonable manner. All variance applications must follow the Subdivision Review Calendar which includes sign posting requirements, review and comments by the Subdivision Advisory Committee (SAC) followed by review and approval by the Planning Commission. The Planning Commission meets and reviews the recommendations of the Subdivision Staff and the SAC on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 4:30 p.m.

To apply for a variance, submit an online application here using the Permit Development Center or complete and submit the variance application form below in person to Suite 4600. For specific questions about the variance application process, call 864.467.5764.
