Zoning Board of Appeals

Overview

The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) is the Special Permit Granting Authority for certain projects as required under the Zoning Bylaw. The ZBA also hears appeals by parties aggrieved by a decision of the Building Commissioner, and may issue Variances where the criteria set forth in the Zoning Bylaw have been met.
