Red and green Loudoun County seal on a green background.

Loudoun County is seeking applicants to serve on the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA). There is one opening for an alternate member whose term would begin in February 2020. 

The duties of the BZA include hearing and deciding: 

  • Appeals of administrative decisions and notices of violations made in accordance with the zoning ordinance; 
  • Applications for variances as authorized by the zoning ordinance;
  • Appeals from the decisions of the Loudoun County Zoning Administrator regarding interpretation of the zoning map where there is uncertainty as to the location of a zoning district boundary; and
  • Applications for special exceptions when buildings or structures have inadvertently encroached into a setback.

The BZA has five members and two alternates who are appointed by the chief judge of the Loudoun County Circuit Court for staggered terms of five years. BZA members must be residents of Loudoun County. 

The BZA meets approximately once a month for a public hearing. 

The deadline to apply for a seat on the BZA is January 31, 2020. More information, including a link to the online application form, is available at loudoun.gov/bza
