Zoning Appeal Board
CA EDM RG-17-17.14 · Series · 1936 - 1946
Part of City of Edmonton. Planning Department fonds

While zoning appeals were first mentioned in 1931 (Bylaw 8-1931), it wasn’t until 1933 that the Zoning Appeal Board was formally established through Zoning Bylaw 26-1933. The Board consisted of five members of the public, appointed by Council, including a member of the Alberta Architects Association, a member of the Alberta Land Surveyors Association, and a member of the Edmonton Real Estate Association. The Board heard appeals from zoning decisions made by the Building Inspector. The Board was governed by the Zoning Bylaw, but in certain circumstances could make recommendations to Council for alterations to zoning boundaries. The Zoning Appeal Board operated until 1950, when the Interim Development Bylaw (Bylaw 1339) was created, which established the Interim Development Appeal Board, which in turn took appeals from any decision made by the Interim Development Officer, including issues of zoning.
