Zoning Board of Adjustment

About the Zoning Board

The primary responsibility of the Zoning Board of Adjustment, sometimes called the Zoning Board, is to hear and vote on requests for variances or exceptions to our zoning ordinance.

In addition, for some applications, the Zoning Board reviews and approves or denies site plans. Other powers of the Board are to hear and decide appeals of decisions made by an administrative officer, such as the Zoning Officer or Planner, and to interpret the zoning map or zoning ordinance.

The Zoning Board is called a quasi-judicial body. It functions like a court of law and makes binding legal decisions. The Municipal Land Use Law ("MLUL"), 40:55D; sets forth the statutory law guiding the Zoning Board.
