The La Porte City Board of Adjustment will have an opening in July, when a current member’s five year term expires. This voluntary Board consists of five members, appointed by the City Council, whose primary role is to hear appeals made by residents related to the City’s existing development ordinances. Membership on the board is open to city residents.

Meetings are scheduled, as needed, on the first and third Thursdays of the month.

Those interested in the Board of Adjustment seat should submit an application to City Hall by Wednesday, July 3. An application is available on the City’s website. To print the application form, logon to and click on the GOVERNMENT link located at the top of the screen.

Questions or comments about the Board of Adjustment may be directed to Jennifer Sparks, Building & Zoning Administrator, at City Hall by phone (342-3396) or e-mail (
