Zoning Board of Appeals


The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) is a board that operates under the direction from the Brookhaven Community Development Director and is appointed by the Brookhaven City Council.  The ZBA evaluates cases relating to certain variances and standards of the zoning ordinance and development regulations, as well as appeals of an administrative official.  The board evaluates matters and makes a final decision based on established Brookhaven Zoning Ordinance criteria. Appeals to decisions of the Zoning Board of Appeals are made to DeKalb County Superior Court.
