Zoning Board of Appeals

The Zoning Board of Appeals function and duties include interpreting the ordinance (text and map), deciding appeals from administrative decisions, and granting variances (use and nonuse). The terms appeal and variance are often used interchangeably, but in fact are two entirely different concepts. A variance, if granted, allows a departure from a particular requirement of the zoning ordinance. An appeal is based on the fact that someone has made a decision related to the zoning ordinance, and another person disagrees with that decision.  

The Zoning Board of Appeals meets as needed at the Town Hall in the 3rd floor Auditorium.


The Zoning Board of Appeals has an open vacancy for a
Board Member & Alternates.
