Zoning Variance Fees & Inspections

A zoning staff person will visit the site and take slides to be shown at the public hearing. If the variance is granted, an inspection by the Building Inspector is made as part of the building permit for the project. A zoning inspector will verify that any conditions attached to the approval are met.

Call (651) 266-9008 to reach a Zoning Inspector.

Checks should be made payable to the City of Saint Paul. Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express are also accepted. When a zoning application is submitted for a development that has been built or started without the required city permits, a late fee will be assessed. The late fee is double the filing fee.


A zoning variance is valid for two years unless a building permit is obtained within the time frame and construction is proceeding according to the terms of the permit. The zoning administrator may grant an extension not to exceed one additional year.
