So I have now been advised that I can only get the ball rolling by simply submitting a written request or attending and speaking at the upcoming meeting which I will be doing. I tried asking for a zoning variance. My response was "Chapter 5 is not part of zoning ordinance. It is not, therefore, within the authority of the Board of Adjustment to consider a variance to Chapter 5’s provisions. By state statute, the variance procedure can only be used for Zoning Ordinance regulations" I know one of the objections will simply be the the city doesn't have the money to regulate it. Can I get some ideas of how to respond please. Thanks!
