Zoning Board of Appeals

Zoning Board of Appeals

In New York State, any town that enforces zoning laws must have a Zoning Board of Appeals, or “ZBA”.  Any landowner who is denied an application to construct or use property in a certain manner has the legal right to appeal that denial to the town’s ZBA and ask for an exception to be made.  That exception is called a “variance.”  New York State law defines the procedures, issues, questions, and tests the ZBA must consider in deciding whether to grant or deny that requested exception, or “variance.”  Meetings are held regularly at the Varick Town Hall  at 7 pm on the second Thursday of the month.
