The Zoning Hearing Board’s purpose is to help assure fair and equitable application and administration of the zoning ordinance by hearing appeals on the Zoning Officer’s determinations and by granting relief from the literal enforcement of the ordinance in certain hardship situations. It is a quasi-judicial body; that is, its powers are to some extent judicial in nature. The board schedules hearings on applications and appeals that come before it, takes evidence, and issues written decisions with findings of fact and conclusions of law.
The Board meets as needed on the fourth Monday of each month beginning at 6:00PM
