The Zoning Administrator renders the final decision, interpretation/determination on the matter when questions occur concerning the content or application of the Unified Development Code (UDC) or the Land Use Code (LUC), whichever is applicable. In making the determination, the Zoning Administrator relies on the purpose of the UDC or LUC section in question. Interpretations and determinations made by the Zoning Administrator can be appealed to the Board of Adjustment in accordance with UDC Sections 3.10.1 and 3.10.2.
Other determinations made by the Zoning Administrator include the classification or reclassification of land uses proposed within the City limits. These land use determinations decide the zoning districts in which the land use may operate and the off-street parking requirements applicable to the land use.
The Zoning Administrator has rendered the following determinations specific to the UDC. However, a determination of the Land Use Code may apply to the UDC when the requirement or standard for which a determination was rendered is substantively the same in the LUC and UDC.
