Article 5. Board of Adjustment Proceedings

§11-501   BOARD PROCEEDINGS; APPEALS; HEARING; NOTICE.  Any person may appeal to the Board of Adjustment by compliance with section 19-909 of the Revised Statutes of Nebraska, 1943, as amended.  Such appeal must be made within a reasonable time following the Zoning Officer's decision by filing a notice of appeal, specifying the grounds for such appeal, with the Board and the officer from whom the appeal is taken.

The Board shall fix a reasonable time for the hearing of an appeal, shall give at least ten (10) days notice to the public and to the parties in interest and shall decide the same within a reasonable time after it is submitted.  Upon the hearing, any party may appear in person or by agent or attorney.  (Ref.  19-909 RS Neb.)

§11-502   BOARD PROCEEDINGS; STAY.  An appeal stays all legal proceedings in furtherance of the action appealed from, unless the zoning officer certifies to the Board after the notice of appeal shall have been filed with him that by reason of facts stated in the certificate a stay would, in his opinion, cause imminent peril to life or property.  In such case, proceedings shall not be stayed otherwise than by a restraining order, which may be granted by the Board or by a court of record on application, on notice on the zoning officer, and on due cause shown.  (Ref.  19-909 RS Neb.)

§11-503   BOARD PROCEEDINGS; APPEALS.  Any person or persons, jointly or severally, aggrieved by any decision of the Board; any taxpayer; or any officer, department, board, or bureau of the Municipality may appeal to the district court from any decision of the Board of Adjustment in the manner and in the time provided by statute.  (Ref.  19-912 RS Neb.)
