Zoning Board of Appeals

The Zoning Board of Appeals consists of five members of the community that are appointed by the Township Board. These members are empowered to hear appeals in matters relating to the zoning ordinance. In some cases, they are asked to interpret the zoning text or map, hear a variance request, or review an appeal of an administrative decision made by the zoning administrator. 

The Zoning Board of Appeals does not have the power to alter or change a zoning district classification of any property, or authorize use variances.  Find the ZBA meeting schedule below.  The ZBA only meets on these dates when they have an application before them.
