Overview
Section 27-1505 & 1506
There is hereby created for the City of Billings, a board of adjustment as provided by statute, consisting of seven members appointed by the Mayor with the consent of the City Council. The Board of Adjustment shall have the following powers:

(1) To hear and decide appeals where it is alleged there is error in any order, requirement, decision or determination made by an administrative official in the enforcement or interpretation of this chapter or of any resolution/ordinance adopted pursuant thereto;

(2) To authorize upon appeal in specific cases such variance from the terms of this chapter as will not be contrary to the public interest and where, owing to special conditions, a literal enforcement of the provisions of this chapter will result in unnecessary hardship, and so that the spirit of this chapter shall be observe and substantial justice done.

The Board of Adjustment shall have the authority to grant a variance from the terms of this chapter in specific cases where it is found that the granting of the variance will not be contrary to the public interest and where, because of special conditions with respect to the lot shape or topography, a literal enforcement of the provisions of the chapter would result in unnecessary hardship.
