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 here.

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