The purpose of the Zoning Board of Adjustment is to rule on deviations from Ewing’s zoning laws. They hear appeals, rule on cases of requests for variance(s) to and interpret “use” applications.
The Zoning Board of Adjustment consists of seven regular members and two alternate members, residents of Ewing Township and appointed by the Township Council. Regular members are appointed for four year terms and alternates are appointed for two year terms. Members may not hold elective offices in the municipality.
Alternate members shall be designated at the time of their appointment as "Alternate No. 1" and "Alternate No. 2." Alternate members may participate in the discussions of the proceedings but may not vote except in the absence or disqualification of a regular member. A vote shall not be delayed in order that a regular member may vote instead of an alternate member. If a choice must be made as to which alternate is to vote, "Alternate No. 1" shall vote.
Members of the Zoning Board of Adjustment designate one of their members to serve as Chair and Vice Chair at the annual reorganization meeting. The also select a Secretary who may or may not be a member of the Board or a municipal employee.
The Zoning Board of Adjustment is advised by the Zoning Board of Adjustment attorney selected by the Board.
Funds are appropriated in the Township budget for expenses including compensation of such experts and other staff and services as it may deem necessary. The Board, however, shall not authorize expenditures which exceed, exclusive of gifts or grants, the amount appropriated by the governing body for its use.
