The City of Tulsa Board of Adjustment is empowered by state law
with granting variances due to hardships and special exceptions to the zoning within its jurisdiction.
When an application is filed,
staff publishes official public notices and informs
nearby residents and neighborhood associations. Staff then reviews appropriate plans and development policies to formulate the case study and staff analysis.
An action summary and/or minutes are prepared of the BOA meetings and sent to various city policy and administrative officials for their information
and/or action as appropriate.
Staff processes approximately 225 BOA cases annually.
