board of zoning appeals

A local board empowered to overturn decisions of a zoning authority. Before embarking on any possibly contested activity in these areas,such as a zoning change request, it is extremely important to find out 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,could have been factored into tactical decisions at the level below.In addition,the time limits for filing appeals are generally short.See appeals board.
