The Town of Poughkeepsie Zoning Board of Appeals (known as the ZBA) is a seven-member panel of Town citizens, with James Challey as Chairman. This Board is required by State law when there is zoning in place. The ZBA is directly given appellate jurisdiction by State law. Appellate jurisdiction is the power to hear and decide appeals from decision of those officials charged with the administration and enforcement of the Zoning Law (the Zoning Administrator and the Building Inspector). This is the primary function and purpose of the ZBA, and it encompasses the power to interpret the Zoning Law and to grant variances. The ZBA is also empowered to grant Special Use Permits under the Town's Zoning Law.
The ZBA meets regularly on the second Monday of each month. Meetings are held in the Meeting Room at Town Hall, beginning at 7:00 p.m. Applications must be received no later than 18 calendar days before the meeting date in order to be on the agenda. Contact Sandy Lane in the Zoning Office for further details at (845) 485-3650.
