Title:Board of Adjustment Member Application
Department:Board of Adjustment
Salary Range:Volunteer

The Board of Adjustment (BOA) consists of five members and is a quasi-judicial board. It is not a legislative body; thus, it has no authority to amend ordinances, create new laws, nor grant use variances.

The board conducts hearings and makes determinations on requests for variances from and special exceptions to the Town of Little Elm Zoning Ordinance, as specified in the ordinance. Historically, the board has made rulings on substandard buildings and amortization cases, although recent state law changes may require revisions to procedure and venue.

The board also has the authority to hear and decide appeals where it is alleged that there is an error in an order, requirement, decision, or determination made by any administrative official of the town in the enforcement of the Zoning Ordinance.

The Board of Adjustment meets the first Monday of every month as needed at 6 p.m. in Town Hall at 100 West Eldorado Parkway, Little Elm, TX 75068.

Interested individuals must have been residents of Little Elm for a minimum of one year, be of a high moral character and willing to devote time, effort and energy to the position, willing to attend regularly scheduled meetings, and must agree to serve a full term. Applications of individuals not chosen for a position on the Board, Commission, or Panel are kept on file for one year in the event a vacancy occurs in one of the panels.

Deadline for submitting applications for consideration is 5 p.m., Monday, January 31, 2022. Individuals who qualify for consideration will undergo interviews with a panel which may include the Mayor, a member of the Town Council and a member of the Board of Adjustment.
