Board of Zoning Appeals

Charter Article 133 - WV Code Chapter 37A

The primary role of the Board of Zoning Appeals (Board) is to hear, review, and determine appeals made by a property owner based on an order or decision of the city’s zoning administrator. The Board will determine whether to grant the property owner an exception to the specific  rules and regulations applicable to a property within a zoning district. They may issue special use permits and/or grant variances to the city’s zoning ordinance.

The Board of Zoning appeals meets in the Bolivar Community Center on an "as needed" basis.
