Clarke County Circuit Court appoints five residents to serve four-year terms on the Board of Zoning Appeals; recommendations for the board are made by the Board of Supervisors. One member is also a member of the Clarke County Planning Commission. Board of Zoning Appeals reviews applications for variances from Zoning Ordinance regulations when a literal enforcement of the Ordinance will result in a hardship approaching confiscation of the use of a property (as opposed to a convenience). The BZA decides on Zoning Ordinance appeals and interprets the Zoning Map when there is any uncertainty as to location of a zoning district boundary.
