What is a variance?

Variances are requests from a property owner to not follow the regulations of the Mebane Unified Development Ordinance due to a “hardship” on the property. If that condition was not present, the property owner could otherwise use the property according to its zoning district. It is the responsibility of the property owner to show to the Board of Adjustment at a public hearing that this hardship is a burden prohibiting them from the use of their property.
