The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) approves or denies requests for variances from the City's Zoning Code for residential, commercial, and industrial properties. A variance is a case-by-case exception to the zoning rules and regulations of the City of Peoria.
For example, a resident who wants to build an 8 foot fence in their back yard would need to apply for a variance from the ZBA.
The ZBA meets quarterly on the 2nd Thursday of the month. Applications for a zoning variance are due one month before the meeting.
