ZBA Hearings

Initiative: 
Zoning

 

Check this page for Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA) hearings for projects in the SOSNA area. All ZBA hearings take place at 1515 Arch Street, 18th Floor. If you attend and wish to be on record for attending (whether or not you testify), fill out an official white appearance form available at the front of the room. This will allow you to file a legal appeal should the ZBA decision be contrary to your preference. Listen at the outset of each meeting in case your case has been continued (postponed). When your case comes up, approach the front of the room and identify yourself as being with the applicants or as a protestant.

A new, easy-to-use ZBA resource - ZBABot - allows you to search the ZBA calendar and get more detailed information about the property in question and the applicant.
