What is a Zoning Board?


What is the Zoning Board of Appeals?

Depending on the number of applications and hearings, the Village Sodus Point Zoning Board meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month at the Village of Sodus Point meeting room at 7:00 P.M.

 

Zoning Board (ZBA)

The Zoning Board of Appeals is a quasi-judicial board, responsible for hearing appeals from persons previously denied building permits.  The standards for review of such matters depend upon the type of variance an applicant may be seeking.  The ZBA has the authority to issue variances to relieve certain zoning restrictions.  The Zoning Board of Appeals guides the future growth of the Village in accordance with a general plan which is developed to ensure the most beneficial and coherent relationships among residential, nonresidential and public areas.Zoning regulations are set in place to guide the character, social, and economic stability of the Village.

The board of appeals has jurisdiction to hear and decide the following:
1. Appeals: Applications brought by aggrieved persons from interpretations of the village code made by the building inspector or from other determinations made by him.
2. Interpretations: Applications brought directly to the board of appeals by any local agency for interpretations of provisions of the village code.
3. Variances: Applications brought by persons for variances from the strict application of provisions of the village code.
4. Special permits: Applications brought by persons for special permits.
Members are appointed by the Mayor with the consent of the Village Board to five years terms.
The ZBA schedules meetings by request of  the Code Enforcement Officer and are held the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month.

Village Projects

Week of November 19th

The Village has finished waterproofing the 49 lower manholes.  Crews are still working around the Village on a few drainage projects and clearing snow accumulated next to fire hydrants.

The big trailer that has been at the wastewater plan all week is a sludge press. We are piloting a different manufacturer so that we can determine which press is best for our plant. The new press is a part of the capital improvements that were started in 2016 for the wastewater plant.

Brush Schedule

Leave collection has ended and snow plowing has begun. We will collect them as long as possible but expect to do more in the Spring.  Christmas tree collection as needed.
