The Fairfax County Board of Zoning Appeals has upcoming openings for two members. One seat will become available on Feb. 21 and the other on June 14.

Interested candidates must apply by March 15 to the Fairfax Circuit Court, which appoints the board’s seven members.

Applicants should send their resume to Chief Judge Penney S. Azcarate, Fairfax Circuit Court, by email entitled “Board of Zoning Appeals Application” to kim.callahan@fairfaxcounty.gov OR by first-class U.S. mail to Chief Judge Penney Azcarate, 4110 Chain Bridge Road, Fairfax, VA 22030.

This position will be for a five-year term from the date of appointment. Members of the Board of Zoning Appeals are appointed for staggered five-year terms; are compensated at a bi-weekly rate of $357.69; and serve as private citizens, not as county employees. Applicants must be residents of Fairfax County. Previous applicants are encouraged to reapply.

The Board of Zoning Appeals’ powers, duties and procedures are set forth in state law, and they are further detailed in the County’s Zoning Ordinance. These duties include:

  • Hearing and deciding appeals of administrative decisions made pursuant to the Zoning Ordinance.
  • Hearing and deciding applications for special permits and variances as authorized by the Zoning Ordinance.
  • Hearing and deciding applications for interpretation of the zoning map where there is uncertainty about the location of a zoning district boundary.
