§

733. Powers of board

Upon the basis

of such inquiry as it deems it necessary to conduct, and upon the basis of

findings resulting therefrom, the board of adjustment shall have authority by

order to authorize such variance from the ordinances in their application to

the lands of the owner who has not complied with the ordinance of the district,

when such variance will relieve practical difficulties or unnecessary hardship

to such owner and when such variance is not contrary to public interest and is in

accordance with the purpose of land-use regulations. The board of adjustment

may request the landowner not complying with an ordinance to sign a stipulation

setting forth the conditions agreed upon by the landowner and supervisors so

that the practical difficulties or unnecessary hardship may be overcome and

work proceed by the consent of such landowner upon his land. However, nothing

in this chapter shall be construed so as to make ineffective any remedies

available under the laws of the state.
