Board of Zoning Appeals
The function of the Board of Zoning Appeals is to act on those matters where the City Ordinance provides for an administrative review, interpretation, exception or special land use approval and to authorize a variance as defined per city ordinance and the laws of the State of Michigan. The Board of Zoning Appeals does not have the power to alter or change the zoning district classification of any property, nor to make any change in the terms of the ordinance.
Housing Board of Appeals
In order that the provisions of this article may be reasonably
applied and substantial justice done in instances where unnecessary

the board of appeals shall be to consider appeals from the decision
of the officials charged with the enforcement of this article and to
determine in particular cases whether any deviations from the strict
enforcement of the article will violate the intent of the article
and jeopardize public health and safety. Click on the link

construction is proposed. The board shall have no authority to
waive requirements of this code. Click on the link below to
