§ 156.50 VARIANCES.
   Where, because of severe topographical or other conditions peculiar to the site, strict adherence to the provisions of this chapter would cause an unnecessary hardship, the Board of Commissioners may, on recommendation of the Planning and Zoning Board, authorize a variance to the terms of this chapter only to the extent that is absolutely necessary and not to an extent which would violate the intent of the chapter. Conditions upon which the request for a variation is based are unique to the property for which the variation is sought and are not applicable, generally, to other property. A concurring vote of four-fifths of the members of the Board of Commissioners shall be necessary to authorize a variance to the terms of this chapter.
