Appeal Form (PDF)

An appeal may be filed the following business day from the decision date (noted on the decision letter or the date of the public hearing). Most appeals must be filed within 15 calendar days of the date the decision is made or public hearing date. To confirm the appeal period, please contact the Project Planner at (818) 238-5250. No appeal can be filed after the appeal deadline.   
 

If Multiple Appeals or Appellants

If more than one appeal is filed on a single project, all appeals will be heard together at a single public hearing. If a person decides to withdraw their appeal and only one appeal was filed, there will be no public hearing.

If multiple individuals wish to appeal a decision for the same reasons, the individuals may file a single appeal form with each individuals signature and share the cost of the appeal. For such an appeal to be withdrawn, all persons who signed the original appeal form must submit a written request to withdraw the appeal.

The Citywide Fee Schedule is available on the Financial Services Department webpage.

Payment of fees may be provided by cash, check (made payable to the "City of Burbank"), or credit card (Visa or MasterCard). For credit card transactions, an administrative fee of 3% per transaction will be charged.
