The Zoning Board of Appeals consists of 5 members and 2 alternates serves the purpose of providing relief in appropriate circumstances from overly restrictive zoning provisions. If an applicant believes that the local zoning ordinance should not apply to his particular case, the applicant may seek a variance by the Zoning Board to determine whether or not a variance should be permitted.
