Zoning Board of Appeals
Zoning regulates the use and dimensional boundaries of privately owned buildings and land. The Zoning code is in place to protect the neighborhoods from the construction of buildings or structures that do not fit into the context of a neighborhood. The Zoning Board of Appeals hears appeals for varying the application of the Zoning Code and determines when it is appropriate to grant deviations from code restrictions.
The Zoning Board of Appeals is responsible for granting special permits for certain uses, and for evaluating requests for variances to the Zoning Bylaw. The Board also decides any appeals of administrative officials.
To file an application please see Forms and Applications on side bar and follow the instructions or contact the Board Chair.
