Zoning Board of Adjustment


The Zoning Board of Adjustment is a board that provides a vehicle for citizens to appeal zoning interpretations and decisions of the Building Official, and request variances from the City’s zoning ordinance. The main purpose of the Board is to provide a “release valve” for those situations where literal enforcement of the City’s Zoning Ordinance may impose unnecessary hardship. The Board may also make final decisions regarding changes, the reestablishment, or termination of nonconforming uses within the City.

Membership consists of 5 members and 3 alternates. Members serve two years: City Secretary provides staff support to this Board.


The Zoning Board of Adjustment meets the last Thursday of the month, as needed. All meetings are held in the Council Chambers at Live Oak City Hall, 8001 Shin Oak Drive, Live Oak, Texas.

Note: Meetings may sometimes be modified or cancelled, and those notices will be posted on the City Calendar.

Agendas & Minutes

Agendas are available prior to the meetings. Minutes are available following approval.
