Special Exception

 All ABZA meetings will start at 6 pm.
 The meetings can be watched live on the County Facebook and Youtube Page.

A special exception is a specific authorization of a proposed land use in a given zoning district, but only upon showing that certain conditions can be met. In Tippecanoe County, only the Area Board of Zoning Appeals can grant a special exception after a Public Hearing at one of its meetings.

 A completed special exception submission consists of the following:

  • Zoning Appeals Petition (Form 21)
  • Findings of Fact for Special Exceptions (Form 21S) 
  • Notarized Consent (Form 1, if necessary)
  • Notice of Public Hearing Release Form (Form 2)
  • Affidavit of Public Notice (Form 5)
  • WL City-Campus Community Collaboration Zone Verification (if necessary)
  • Site Plan
  • Fee: See Fee Schedule (PDF)
