Board of Zoning Appeals

The Board of Zoning Appeals, a volunteer board, is called upon to render decisions for the good of the community at large.

When a specific use, a setback from a property line or a site specific hardship is encountered, it is required that the Zoning Inspector deny the issuance of a Building Permit, unless a prior hearing has provided a precedent.

The only recourse an applicant has after having been denied a permit is to request a variance from the Zoning Board of Appeals. That process includes a public notice in the local newspaper, letters to each landowner within 200 feet, and a public hearing prior to a decision being rendered.
