We no longer use printed Zoning Board of Appeals Application Forms, but rather have applications completed entirely online. Our online permitting system can be found on ViewPoint Cloud.

To determine the prior variances on a property (as required by the ZBA application form on page 2) search the Zoning Board of Appeals Variances Spreadsheet (PDF).  It lists ZBA Variances acted upon through December 27, 2019.  Note: The document is 209 pages long; you are best off searching for the property, rather than printing the document.


Materials for pending applications and recent actions can be found at ViewPoint Cloud. Channel 79 occasionally records meetings, including public hearings; at the Channel 79 Vimeo.
