Scope and Content
The board of adjustment meets monthly to consider appeals to Cedar City zoning decisions and to hear petitions for variances or special exceptions to zoning specifications (Utah Code Annotated, 10-9-103(1), 1997). The board consists of five members and alternate members as the chief executive officer considers appropriate (UCA 10-9-701(2)(a) 1997). In the minutes the secretary summarizes considerations brought before the board. The majority of requests are for variances to home occupation, such as home owner requests to operate commercial activities from their homes. The secretary reports the date and time of meeting, the names of those present, and records the board's decision on each consideration. When voting is not unanimous the minutes report who voted for and against. Beginning in 1994 the minutes begin to include some home inspection reports.
Codified ordinances from Cedar City (Utah), Series 23573, are evaluated by the board when making decisions about special exceptions or variances to ordinances.
Planning commission minutes from Cedar City (Utah), Series 23574, discuss similar issues because the planning commission supervises the activities of the board of adjustment.
