The Zoning Board of Adjustments and Appeals (ZBA) is responsible for the requests of variances (commercial and residential) to the Unified Development Code (UDC) due to unusual circumstances, unique or restricted physical limitation or hardships where absolute adherence to the UDC might or would preclude any development whatsoever of a piece of property.
They also can consider expansions of non-conforming uses, amortization of non-conforming uses, appeals to administrative decisions of staff, and network nodes.

Agendas and Minutes
The Zoning Board of Adjustments and Appeals meetings are held once a month, generally at 7 p.m. every third Monday. Meetings are usually conducted in-person at Grand Prairie City Hall Council Chambers, 300 W. Main Street. If it is determined that a videoconference should replace the in-person format or if a videoconference will be offered in addition to the in-person format, information on how to participate in the videoconference will be listed within the meeting agendas below.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we encourage residents who do not wish to speak at public meetings to watch online instead or watch replays. (Note: Technical issues may prevent a complete broadcast.)
Nine members. Mayor and council members appoint one member each.
