Madison County Board of Zoning Appeals

The Madison County Board of Zoning Appeals is a five (5) member board appointed by the Madison County Commission to hear and decide appeals, interpret the zoning map, grant special exceptions and variances in areas outside the city . Members are appointed for a three (3) year term.

Appeals involve situations where it is alleged that there is error in any order, requirement, permit, decision, or refusal made by the Zoning Administrator or any other administrative official in carrying out or enforcement of any provision of the Zoning Ordinance. Special exceptions are uses that are not permitted outright but must be reviewed by the Board of Zoning Appeals before any work is done such as in the case of churches and schools. Variances are where, by reason of exceptional narrowness, shallowness or shape of a specific piece of property or by reason of exceptional situation or condition, the strict application of any zoning regulation would result in undue hardship upon the owner. Thus, the individual is allowed to "vary" from the normal zoning regulations. Below is a current listing of the members:
