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.
