Review Boards

Santa Rosa County utilizes several review boards to conduct public business and facilitate public participation in the development and planning process. Each board serves a particular purpose and hears requests based on that purpose. County staff serves as staff to each of these review boards. All review board meetings are open to the public.


For more information about each of the review boards, click on the links below.
Bagdad Architectural Advisory Board
The Bagdad Architectural Advisory Board or BAAB performs design review and renders decisions for all new development, demolitions, building relocations, building alterations and similar activities for properties located within Bagdad’s designated Historic and Conservation Overlay Districts. The BAAB consists of 5 voting members and one non-voting ex-officio member as appointed by the board of county commissioners. All BAAB meetings are open to the public and are typically held on the fourth Wednesday of the month.

The Santa Rosa County Fire Protection Board of Adjustments and Appeals, or FPBOAA, was established to meet the requirements set forth by the National Fire Protection Association, or NFPA, Codes 1 and 101, also known as the Florida Fire Prevention Code. The FPBOAA consists of five members, each appointed by a county commissioner. All FPBOAA meetings are open to the public and are typically held on the second Thursday of the month as needed. The duties of the board, as described by code, are as follows:
  • Section - The board of appeals shall provide for reasonable interpretation of the provisions of this code and rule on appeals from decisions of the AHJ.
  • Section - The ruling of the board of appeals shall ensure that the intent of the Code is complied with and public safety is secured.
  • Section - The board of appeals shall be permitted to grant alternatives or modifications through the procedures outlined in Section 1.4 of this code.
  • Section - The board of appeals shall not have the authority to waive the requirements of this Code.
In addition to the above prescribed duties, the FPBOAA provides interpretation and rules on appeals of the Santa Rosa County Fire Prevention Ordinance. Decisions made by the FPBOAA relating to fire prevention ordinance may be appealed to the board of county commissioners should an appellant disagree with the FPBOAA's decision. Decisions made by the FPBOAA relating to provisions of the Florida Fire Prevention Code and its adopted referenced standards may be appealed to the Bureau of Fire Prevention, Division of the Florida State Fire Marshal.

Zoning Board
In early 2011, the Board of County Commissioners, or BOCC, combined the Local Planning Board and the Zoning Board of Adjustments as identified by the Land Development Code. The newly formed Zoning Board, or ZB, continues to serve as the state-required local planning agency with several additional responsibilities.

First, the ZB hears requests for variances and special exceptions where there are practical difficulties or unnecessary hardships due to strict application of the land development code.

Second, the ZB hears and makes recommendations to the BOCC for conditional use, rezoning and comprehensive plan amendment requests. Also, the ZB makes recommendations to the BOCC regarding proposed land development code and comprehensive plan policies.

Lastly, the ZB prepares the comprehensive plan and makes recommendations to the BOCC regarding evaluation of comprehensive plan policies every five years.

All ZB meetings are public and are held to facilitate public participation in the local planning process. The ZB consists of 10 voting members, with each Commissioner appointing two members, and two non-voting members (one school district representative and one military representative). The ZB typically meets on the second Thursday of the month.
Process for Rezonings Only (i.e., those that do not require a Future Land Use Map Amendment)
Rezonings that require a future land use map amendment require additional processing as listed within the applicable flowcharts under Long Range Planning
