Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA)

The Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) is responsible for deciding whether variances from the Town's zoning regulations can be granted based upon special physical conditions of property, administrative appeals of the Zoning Ordinance, or interpretations of the Zoning Map where there is uncertainty as to the location of a zoning district boundary.

Following the public hearing, the Board of Zoning Appeals makes a final decision. If someone does not agree with the decision of the BZA, they can file a petition with the Circuit Court to review the decision of the BZA.

The five members of the Board are appointed by the Circuit Court Judge upon recommendation from the Town Council. All members are appointed at large and do not represent any particular magisterial district.
