The Office of Zoning and Administrative Hearings hears cases related to accessory apartments under three circumstances.
The first is in cases where a license will not be granted by the Department of Housing and Community Affairs because a) the parking provided is insufficient or b) the proposed accessory apartment is too close to another existing accessory apartment. In those cases, the applicant must file an application for a conditional use.
The second type of accessory apartment case is one where the applicant seeks a detached accessory apartment in the AR, R or RC Zone. This type of case also requires an application for a conditional use.
The third circumstance where OZAH would hear an accessory apartment case is when there is objection filed with OZAH, either by a community member or by the applicant, when the objector believes the approval or denial of an accessory apartment license by DHCA was made in error. This case is initiated by the filing of a formal Objection with OZAH, not a conditional use application.
