The ZBA is authorized by Michigan statute and helps ensure that the objectives of the Zoning Ordinance are met, public safety secured, and substantial justice is done. All meetings are open to the public and public notices are completed prior to a public hearing. The powers and jurisdiction of the ZBA are specified in the City of Portage Zoning Ordinance (Section 42-620 to 42-623) and include the granting of variances, interpretations, temporary uses and other appeals as authorized in the ordinance.
