Zoning Board of Appeals Members:
Kyran P. Kelly
T. R. Schepp
Lauren Seiter - Attorney
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.
The ZBA can hear two types of appeals, those for an interpretation and those for a variance to the Zoning Ordinances. An interpretation is a determination by the ZBA as to the meaning of a provision of the Zoning Ordinance. There are two 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.
