Presenting to the Planning Commission


Responsibilities

  • Approves final plans, with or without conditions.


Board of Zoning Appeals

The Planning Commission also serves as the Board of Zoning Appeals. They have the authority to grant variances and exceptions from the requirements of the Unified Development Code, which would allow a property to be developed in a way normally not permitted by development regulations.

This process is intended to provide relief in unique situations where strict compliance with the code would cause undue hardship for the property owner. Most often, the Board receives variance requests about setbacks, fences, accessory buildings, height of buildings and other improvements.

Lenexa City Code Section 4-1-K

Board of Zoning Appeals meetings, if scheduled, take place on the same night as regularly scheduled Planning Commission meetings.
