Overview


The powers of the ZBA are established by state law, which establish the ZBA as an appellate board who can review the application of a person who has applied to the Code Enforcement Officer for a zoning permit and such permit was denied. An "aggrieved" citizen can also appeal the decision of the Code Enforcement Officer where a permit was granted. In both instances, the ZBA is the first level of appeal from the decision of the Code Enforcement Officer.
 

Appeals


The ZBA can hear 2 types of appeals, those for an interpretation and those for a variance to the Zoning Ordinances.

Interpretation


An interpretation is a determination by the ZBA as to the meaning of a provision of the Zoning Ordinance.

Variance


There are 2 types of variances, area variances and use variances. An area variance is a variance dealing with dimensional issues such as setbacks from property lines, building heights, and bulk requirements. A use variance is a variance that allows a use not otherwise permitted on the property by the Zoning Ordinance. The applicant must provide proof to the ZBA to be entitled to a variance.
