Board of Zoning Appeals

Request email notification when page changes E-Notify
The Morristown Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) reviews variance and use on review requests in an effort to balance Zoning Ordinance requirements with special circumstances and site conditions. Each variance request is reviewed based upon specific criteria and whether or not a hardship is created by adhering to the Zoning Ordinance. Hardships may be created by topography, irregular lot shapes, or existing easements.

The BZA meets immediately following Planning Commission meetings every second Tuesday of the month at 4:00 P.M. in the Council Chambers of the City Center.
