BACKGROUND INFORMATION

 

Previous Commission action/date:  June 6, 2017 - Last BCC action.

 

Background:  Section 11-19-1, et seq., Code of Alabama 1975, authorizes County commissioners of the State of Alabama to adopt zoning ordinances and building codes for flood prone areas which lie outside the corporate limits of a municipality in the county.

 

Pursuant to the aforementioned statutory authority, the Baldwin County Commission adopted what is known as the Baldwin County Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance, which was last amended by the Baldwin County Commission during the June 6, 2017, Regular Meeting.

 

Since the Baldwin County Commission adopted the Baldwin County Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance pursuant to Section 11-19-1, et seq., Code of Alabama 1975, among other statutory authorities, Section 11-19-19, Code of Alabama 1975, requires county commissioners to provide for a "Board of Adjustment" to, in brief, in appropriate cases and subject to appropriate conditions and safeguards, make special exceptions to the terms of the zoning ordinance and regulations in harmony with its general purposes and interests and in accordance with the general or specific rules adopted pursuant to Section 11-19-1, et seq., Code of Alabama 1975, (which in this case are the terms of the Baldwin County Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance which is authorized in part by Section 11-19-1, et seq., Code of Alabama 1975). 

 

The Board consists of five (5) members who are residents of Baldwin County, Alabama, which are respectively appointed by the Baldwin County Commission for three (3) year terms.

 

The Baldwin County Building Official nominates for re-appointment the respective persons listed at the staff recommendation and respectfully requests the Baldwin County Commission provide the required authorization for appointment. Further, the Baldwin County Building Official's office has confirmed to staff that the persons referenced in the staff recommendation are residents of Baldwin County; therefore, staff confirms the foregoing persons are qualified to be appointed.
