Zoning Board of Adjustment

Shannon Rapant


(908) 322-6700, ext. 307

The Zoning Board of Adjustment conducts public hearings once a month to hear and decide upon applications for Zoning Code variances, appeals of the Zoning Officer's decisions, and interpretations of the Zoning Code. The Zoning Board is made up of seven regular members all of whom are appointed by the Township Council and serve four-year terms without compensation. In addition, the Zoning Board hires its own consultants at the beginning of each year when it reorganizes. In addition, the Township Council may appoint up to two alternate members of the Board of Adjustment, both of whom will serve in rotation during the absence or disqualification of any regular member or members. The term length for an alternate member is two years.


Individual homeowners may appear before the Zoning Board of Adjustment without legal counsel. Commercial applicants, however, are required to have legal representation. A Zoning Variance Application and checklist can be obtained from the Zoning Board Clerk in the Zoning Division Office.
