Meetings held 2nd Tuesday of the month - 6:30pm at the township hall.
The township has a five-member Zoning Board of Appeals to hear requests from citizens for relief from ordinances. Usually these requests have to do with variances, special use permits and other determinations. A variance is an approved departure from the normal requirements imposed by the local zoning ordinance. A variance is needed if construction, alteration, or occupancy of a structure will result in a violation of zoning requirements.
Typical requests to vary from Ordinance requirements might include:
-to build a structure closer to the property line or to a body of water
-to erect a larger sign or
-to construct fewer parking spaces
