The Zoning Board of Adjustment is a five-member board of citizens. Members are appointed by the City Council, and deliberate and decide petitions for variance, special use permits, appeals and interpretations of the Zoning Administrator. These decisions involve two key elements—the findings of fact regarding the specific proposal and the exercise of judgment and discretion in applying predetermined policies to the situation. By Ordinance adoption, the Town Council has charged the Board of Adjustment with the following duties:

  1. Decide appeals from any order, decision, requirement, or interpretation made by the Zoning Administrator.
  2. Hold public hearing and decide petitions for special use permits, general variances, and applications for variances from watershed district overlay.
  3. Decide issues involving interpretations of the zoning map, including disputed district boundary lines and lot lines.
  4. Advise Council on need for zoning ordinance amendments; and
  5. Any other matter the Board is required to act upon by any other Town ordinance.
