Responsibilities

The Board of Adjustment was established by the City of Wimberley to provide for the orderly development of land within the corporate limits of the city. This Board can grant variances from certain specific and literal requirements of the Zoning Code.

Variance

A variance is defined in the Zoning Code as the relief from strict application of any terms and provisions of the ordinance, when such strict application would cause an undue hardship. The hardship must be due to the nature of the land or tract of land, and cannot be economic in nature.

Conditions Required for a Variance

No variance shall be granted without first having given public notice and having held a public hearing on the variance request in accordance with Ordinance Number 2001-010, Section 10.8, and unless the Board of Adjustment makes specific, written findings are as follows:

  1. That there are special circumstances or conditions affecting the property involved such that the strict application of the provisions of this ordinance would (a) deprive the applicant of reasonable use of the property; and (b) create an unnecessary hardship in the development of the property
  2. That such circumstances or conditions are (a) not self-imposed; (b) not based solely on economic gain or loss; and (c) do not generally affect most properties in the vicinity of the property
  3. The variance is necessary for the preservation and enjoyment of a substantial property right of the applicant
  4. The variance if granted will not: (a) adversely affect the public health, safety, or welfare (b) be contrary to the public interest; and (c) be injurious to or adversely affect the orderly use of other property in the area
  5. The property involved is otherwise in compliance with all other applicable City ordinances, rules and regulations
  6. The granting of this variance will be in harmony with the spirit and purpose of this ordinance
