Reasonable Modification

Planning Code Section 305.1 provides a process for individuals with a disability to request a “reasonable modification” to their residential properties to eliminate any barriers to accessing their home. A request for “reasonable modification” may include changes that are not allowed under current Planning Code regulations, or require a variance from the Planning Code. In either case, a request for a reasonable modification should be made using the following application packet. There are two processes available for requesting a reasonable modification: an administrative reasonable modification process and the standard variance process. To learn more about the variance process, please see Planning Code Section 305 or the variance application packet.

Pursuant to Planning Code Section 305.1, the Zoning Administrator shall hear and make determinations regarding applications for reasonable modifications to Planning Code requirements applications that fit the criteria outlined in Section 305.1. To request reasonable modifications to non-Planning Code regulations, policies, practices, and procedures please contact the Planning Information Center (PIC) per the information below.
