A local board empowered to overturn decisions of a permitting,zoning,taxing,or other regulatory authority.Before embarking on any possibly contested activity in these areas,such as a zoning change request, it is extremely important to determine the name and requirements of the correct appeals board,should it become necessary to ask for reversal of a decision.Many boards have very limited and technical grounds for appeal that, if known in advance, can be factored into tactical decisions at the level below. In addition, the time limits for filing appeals are generally extremely short.
