Through the authority of Corinth’s Home Rule Charter, the City of Corinth Zoning Ordinance and under the Local Government Code, Section 211.008 the Board is authorized to make special exceptions to the terms of the Zoning Ordinance. 

The burden of proof falls on the applicant, i.e.: (1) If a variance is requested, factual evidence must be presented to satisfy the Board that a hardship exists, which is not generally true of other properties in the area and which is not a self-created hardship. (The economic cost of compliance is not legally considered a hardship.) (2) If the decision of an administrative official is appealed, evidence must be presented to satisfy the Board that an error exists in the official’s decision. (3) If a special exception is requested, evidence must be presented to satisfy the Board that a special exception to terms of the ordinance is warranted due to the peculiar circumstances of the situation. 

This Board requires that a quorum (4 of the 5 members) be present to act upon any variance request. The board by majority vote shall adopt rules in accordance with any ordinance adopted under this subchapter. It takes four (4) concurring votes of the members to approve a variance.
