Board of Zoning Appeals Alternate

Board of Zoning Appeals Alternate (2) (part-time)

The establishment of a Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) is required by law for any township in Ohio that has adopted zoning. The Board’s job is to hear, and make quasi-judicial decisions on, applications for variances, conditional uses, and administrative appeals. An alternate member can take the place of an absent regular member at any meeting, according to procedures prescribed by the Resolution of the Trustees and in the By-Laws of the Board of Zoning Appeals.

The township board of zoning appeals may:

(A) Hear and decide appeals where it is alleged there is an error in any order, requirement, decision, or determination made by an administrative official in the enforcement of sections 519.02 to 519.25  of the Revised Code, or of any resolution adopted pursuant thereto;

(B) Authorize, upon appeal, in specific cases, such variance from the terms of the zoning resolution as will not be contrary to the public interest, where, owing to special conditions, a literal enforcement of the resolution will result in unnecessary hardship, and so that the spirit of the resolution shall be observed and substantial justice is done;

(C) Grant conditional zoning certificates for the use of land, buildings, or other structures if such certificates for specific uses are provided for in the zoning resolution. If the board considers conditional zoning certificates for activities that are permitted and regulated under Chapter 1514. of the Revised Code or activities that are related to making finished aggregate products, the board shall proceed in accordance with section 519.141 of the Revised Code.

(D) Revoke an authorized variance or conditional zoning certificate granted for the extraction of minerals, if any condition of the variance or certificate is violated.

Compensation: is $40.00 per meeting.
