The Three Way Board of Zoning Appeals is a three (3) member board appointed by the Mayor to hear and decide appeals, interpret the zoning map and grant special exceptions and variances in Three Way. Members are appointed for a three (3) year term. Meetings are held at the Three Way Fire Station at 174 Three Way Lane on the first Monday of each month at 3:30 p.m.
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 the 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.
