Board of Zoning Appeals ("BZA")

The BZA hears appeal requests for projects that fall out of line with the Town of Danby's Zoning Ordinance.

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). 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.

Are you interested in serving on the BZA? Fill out an application!

Appointees serve the Board for a term of five years. The Board of Zoning Appeals meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month, when an appeal needs to be heard, at 7pm. NOTE: As of September 2021, meetings are currently held via Zoom. See the calendar for the link. Meeting agendas and materials are posted in advance and public participation through written comments is STRONGLY encouraged.

If you have questions or would like more information, please call or email the Town Planner.
