Effective August 5, all future meetings of the Zoning Board of Adjustments and Appeals will be held in the City Council chambers located on the upper level of City Hall. The larger space will more comfortably accommodate all residents who attend. The ZBA is empowered to grant relief from the strict application of the Zoning Regulations (variances), approve certain uses of land (special exceptions), and hear appeals of actions taken by the Zoning Administrator. The Board's five members and two supernumeraries are appointed by the City Council. The meetings are held the first Thursday of each month beginning at 5:30 p.m.
