Board of Adjustment

Overview

The Board of Adjustment is an independent body comprised of Mille Lacs County residents appointed by the County Board. They are given the authority to grant variances from the requirements of the zoning ordinance. Typical variances are to reduce setbacks to the property lines, reduce the required lot area or to increase the amount of impervious surface allowed in the shoreland area.

In order to grant a variance, the Board of Adjustment considers the criteria found in Section 1206.2 of the Development Ordinance (PDF). In addition to variances, The Board of Adjustment considers appeals from residents who disagree with a staff interpretation of the ordinance requirements.
