Board of Adjustment
The Board of Adjustment is a quasi-judicial board that is responsible for reviewing variance requests from the Routt County Zoning Regulations in unincorporated Routt County including the communities of Milner, Phippsburg, Toponas and Hahn’s Peak.
The principle responsibility is neither to the developer nor to the applicant, but to determine if a variance should be approved under specific criteria in Section 3.4.6 of the Routt County Zoning Regulations that are used to determine hardships. The Board of Adjustment performs all functions, powers, and duties as defined by the Routt County Zoning Resolution including:
- Hearing and deciding requests for variances from strict application of the following zoning regulations: minimum setbacks, lot width, lot area, and floor area, and maximum structure height and separation between primary and secondary dwelling units.
The Board of Adjustment meets as needed on the 2nd Monday of every month at 6:00 p.m. Please reference the Planning Departments' homepage for information on how to participate.
