          Zoning Board of Adjustment

The Zoning Board is the board of "non-permitted uses." That is, zoning boards deal with the issuance of variances, which are based on the township's zoning ordinances. These zoning ordinances establish specific requirements for a land area within the towship and regulates not only the uses permitted, but also the size of the parcels, setbacks required, parking, signage, conditional uses, and various other regulations.

An applicant must meet specific criteria contained in the Municipal Land Use Law by satisfying certain legal standards of proof, and the burden is on the applicant to show that he/she is entitled to the specific relief requested. Merely making application and paying the required fees is not sufficient.

Board Members are appointed by the Council and serve staggered four year terms. Alternates serve two years.

Zoning Board meetings at the municipal building are normally held the third Tuesday of the month with workshop meetings at 6:00 pm and public meetings at 7:00 PM.
