Committee Volunteer Opportunity - Board of Variance


The City of Kimberley invites applications from community members interested in becoming a member of the Board of Variance. One three-year term position is available.

The Board of Variance consists of three community members appointed by City Council. The Board is responsible for reviewing and making decisions on requests to vary, or relax, development regulations such as building size and siting requirements. Although the meeting schedule can vary, the Board typically meets for approximately one hour at 10am on the 1st Wednesday of each month. Additional time commitment involves review of applications and supporting information prior to the meetings. All meetings are open to the public.

Decisions made by the Board directly influence the form and character of Kimberley’s built environment. Preferred candidates will have excellent communication and critical decision making skills and be able to evaluate the impacts of variance decisions on the subject property, adjacent properties and the broader community. A demonstrated interest or experience in land use planning, urban design or building design and construction is an asset. Previous committee or board decision-making experience is preferred.

How to apply:

Please submit an expression of interest highlighting your relevant qualifications and experience to the Manager of Planning at or to City Hall at 340 Spokane Street, Kimberley, BC V1A 2E8. Deadline for submissions is 4:00pm February 4, 2020. It is anticipated that the Board member selection will be confirmed by City Council at the February 10, 2020 meeting.
