Board of Adjustment


The Zoning Board of Adjustment is a quasi-judicial body created by the City Council under the authority granted by the Windsor Heights Zoning Ordinance. The board may only act in areas that it is given express authority by law. The major responsibilities of this board include hearing and deciding:

  • Appeals in the enforcement of the zoning ordinance
  • Requests for variances from the terms of the zoning ordinance
  • Cases involving the reconstruction, extension, or enlargement of nonconforming uses and structures
  • Conditional Use Permits


  • The Zoning Board of Adjustment meets when it has business.
