Administrative Adjustment


The purpose of an administrative adjustment is to allow minor adjustments to certain requirements and numerical standards in these land development regulations (LDRs) based on specific review standards. The intent is to provide relief when application of a standard creates practical difficulties in advancement of Comprehensive Plan goals or zoning district purposes.

When Is This Required?

An administrative adjustment is required when the applicant seeks a minor deviation from a specific list of LDR standards provided in section 8.8.1 B (PDF) (examples: LSR, setbacks, grade, etc.).


  • How Long: Up to 60 days after application deemed sufficient
  • Who Decides:
