Zoning Board of Appeals Vacancy

The Town of Romulus has a vacancy on its Zoning Board of Appeals.

The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) interprets the Town Zoning Code and evaluates the benefit an applicant would realize if they were to be granted a variance against any impacts that the town might realize as a result of the variance. The ZBA can grant use variances to allow the use of land for a purpose that is otherwise not allowed or is prohibited by zoning regulations. The ZBA can also grant area variances to reduce the required setback distances if an applicant can demonstrate suitable hardship.

The Zoning Board of Appeals meets on the third Thursday of the month when there is business to which the board needs to attend.

If you are interested in this position, please send a letter of introduction to the Romulus Town Board at P.O. Box 177, Willard NY 14588. We will be accepting applications until April 16, 2021.
