17.52.010 Purpose.

It is realized that there are certain parcels of land of such dimension, subject to such title restrictions, so affected by physical conditions and/or devoted to such use that it is impossible for the subdivider to conform to all of the foregoing requirements when subdividing property.  (Ord. 375 §15.1, 1965).

17.52.020 Conditions necessary for grant.

The planning commission may recommend, and the board of supervisors may grant, variances from the requirements of this title, when all the following conditions are found to apply:

A.    That any variance granted shall be subject to such conditions as will assure that the adjustment thereby authorized shall not constitute a grant of special privilege inconsistent with the limitations upon other properties in the same vicinity;

B.    That because of special circumstances applicable to the subject property, including size, shape, togography, location or surroundings, the strict literal application of this title is found to deprive subject property of privileges enjoyed by other properties in the vicinity;

C.    That under the circumstances of this particular case the variance, rather than the sections at issue in this title, actually carries out the spirit and intent of this title.  (Ord. 375 §15.2, 1965).

17.52.030 Application fee.

Every application for a variance shall be accompanied by the payment of a fee of fifty dollars, which fee shall not be refundable.  (Ord. 641 §1, 1978).
