Zoning Board of Appeals

The Zoning Board of Appeals enforces the zoning laws of the City of Newburgh and hears applications for variances to those laws.

An applicant for a variance must demonstrate that a substantial and unique hardship would be created by the strict interpretation of the zoning law, and this hardship can be corrected by a slight variation in the regulations without causing undue hardship to others or to the City as a whole.

For more information, see Section 300 in the City Code. If you have questions, contact the Code Compliance department or the City Planner.
