Board of Zoning Appeals

Table Of Contents:
Duties:

The Board of Zoning Appeals meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month, when an appeal needs to be heard, at 7pm in Danby Town Hall.

 

The Town of Danby has implemented a Zoning Ordinance that includes:

  • Land Use Regulation
  • Dimensional Requirements

When a proposed project does not comply with the Zoning Ordinance, an appeal may be filed with Danby's Board of Zoning Appeals (the BZA, a.k.a. Zoning Board of Appeals, ZBA). Appeals may request:

  • a Use Variance—when the intended use of a property does not conform to the uses permitted in a particular zone
  • an Area Variance—when the size or location of a project does not conform to the dimensional requirements specified for the zone

The BZA Appeal form, including instructions and guidance, may also be downloaded

  • PDF (120KB, for printing) format.

More information, paper copies of these forms, and others, are available from the Town Planner (planner@townofdanbyny.org, 607-277-2400)
