The Conditional Use & Variance Board conducts public hearings and decides on applications for variances from the literal application of the zoning code when specific standards for review are found to be met. They also conduct public hearings and decide on applications for conditional use. A conditional use is one that, due to its nature, is reviewed on a parcel by parcel basis and that may have reasonable conditions attached as a condition of approval. The Conditional Use and Variance Board also hears and decides appeals from the decision of the Development Review Committee in the site plan and engineering review process.
The Conditional Use & Variance Board meets on the fourth Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the James S. Page Governmental Complex located at 96135 Nassau Place, Yulee. Board members serve three (3) year terms and are required to file financial disclosure. Members are provided a monthly stipend of $75/month and are reimbursed for mileage at rates set by the Federal General Services Administration. That amount is currently $0.54 per mile through September 30, 2017.
