Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dallas County, Terry Rickers, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Ahlers and Buller, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (6 pages)

            Julie Becker appeals the district court’s denial of her petition for writ of certiorari regarding an exception to a zoning ordinance authorized by the Dallas Center Board of Adjustment, arguing (1) the board lacked authority to grant the exception and (2) the board erred in concluding there was sufficient parking available to accommodate commercial activities.  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude the district court did not err in concluding the board had authority to grant an exception and substantial evidence supports the board’s finding that adequate parking was available.
