Planning and Zoning

The Jasper Plan Commission (JPC), an 11-member board, addresses rezoning and subdivision of land requests for the City and its two-mile jurisdiction in addition to maintaining and updating the City's Comprehensive Plan. The Jasper Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) is a five-member board that addresses variances to the standards laid out in the city's Unified Development Ordinance. The primary types of appeals that can be filed with the BZA include: Nonconforming Situation Ruling; Administrative Appeal Ruling; Special Exception; Development Standard Variance; and Use Variance.
