Procedures For Residents Attending Planning and Zoning Meetings

The Board of Adjustment is a municipal agency which has limited but exclusive jurisdiction.  The basis for board of adjustment jurisdiction is set forth in NJSA 40:55D-70 and 40:55D-76.  The Board of Adjustment is a quasi-judicial body, with more discretion to render decisions than planning boards.  The applications heard by the Board of Adjustment are appeals from zoning officers, interpretations of the zoning ordinance and requests for variances.  The Board also has ancillary jurisdiction to decide subdivision and site plan matters in connection with (d) variances.
