Zoning Board of Adjustment

Agendas are available one week prior to the scheduled hearing. For more information, please call Lori Cartwright at 970-328-8751. 

The Zoning Board of Adjustment meets as needed to review applications for zoning variances. View additional powers and duties outlined in the Eagle County Land Use Regulations on page 5-6.

Apply to Join the ZBA as an Associate Member!

ZBA associate members serve an important role in our community and help to review zoning variance requests to the Eagle County Land Use Regulations (the “ECLUR”) Zone District Dimensional Limitations requirements. We also rely on ZBA members to provide expertise and recommendations for ECLUR amendments. Associate members are one year term members who step into a regular member position if a regular ZBA member is not available for a hearing. Associate members often will move into a regular position when one becomes available. Associate members participate in all work sessions. 

Members and associate members of the Zoning Board of Adjustment need to be residents of Eagle County and registered voters prior to appointment. Although no specific experience requirements are necessary, consideration is given to applicants who have experience or education in planning, law, architecture, natural resource management, real estate and related fields.

Eagle County staff will review the applications and schedule interviews on September 18 between 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.  as the next step. If you plan to apply, please save this block of time on your calendar for a 20 minute interview.
