Board of Adjustments
Meetings: As needed, at the City Offices. All Board of Adjustment meetings are open to the public. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, the City will make reasonable accommodations to participate in the meeting. Request for assistance can be made by contacting the City Recorder at least 48 hours in advance of the meeting to be held.
What is the Board of Adjustment?
The Board of Adjustment is a quasi-judicial body charged with the responsibility to provide for just and fair treatment in the administration of the Wellsville City zoning ordinances, and to ensure that substantial justice is done. This is accomplished by the granting of “variances” and ”special exceptions.”
Who are the members of the Board?
The members of the Board of Adjustment are ordinary citizens of Wellsville. They are not City employees, but citizens with their own vocations who desire to donate some time to the City. The Board members do not answer to the Mayor, City Council or Planning Commission, and can act as an independent, quasi-judicial body.
Chairperson: Don Jeppesen
Term expires: January 2014

What is a “variance?”
A variance is permission by the City to waive or alter a standard requirement of the Development Code (zoning ordinance). For example, a builder may ask that a new structure be allowed closer to the property line or be allowed to cover more of the property than is allowed by code. State Law requires that certain findings must be met in order for a variance to be granted.
What is a “special exception?”
A special exception is asking the Board for some type of land use that is appropriate in some areas of the City, but not appropriate in all areas of the City. The types of land uses that the Board can approve as special exceptions are specifically defined in the zoning ordinance.
