Zoning Hearing Board Meetings

Zoning Hearing Boards are mandated by the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code. The major role of a Zoning Hearing Board is to provide a legal mechanism for considering appeals from property owners seeking variances from zoning requirements, Special Exception approvals, Interpretations of the regulations and, as a way to challenge the validity of land use determinations. The Zoning Hearing Board meets on an as-needed basis. Meetings will be scheduled within 60 days of receipt of a complete application. When meetings are scheduled they are publicly advertised and listed on the website.  For questions regarding the Zoning Hearing Board, including fees associated with filing, please contact Zoning Officer Brian Searle, at 717-774-0404.
