Additional Information

In making its decisions, the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) interprets the Town Zoning Code and evaluates the benefit an applicant would realize if they were to be granted a variance against any impacts that the town might realize as a result of the variance.

The ZBA can grant use variances to allow the use of land for a purpose that is otherwise not allowed or is prohibited by zoning regulations. Use variances are granted very infrequently.

The ZBA can also grant area variances to reduce required setback distances if an applicant can demonstrate suitable hardship. While the number of area variances granted by the ZBA each year is quite small, it is the most frequently requested variance coming before the board.

This position receives a stipend.
