The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA), as an administrative body made up of laypersons appointed by the Town Board and does not have any legislative functions. The ZBA therefore, does not impose zoning, nor does it have the authority to amend the zoning regulations or change the boundaries of the districts where they are applicable.

 

The ZBA is designed to function as a ''safety valve" to relieve the pressure of rigid and inflexible provisions of zoning codes and statutes and encompasses the power, if an appeal is properly taken to the board, to interpret the zoning ordinance or local law and to grant variances. All zoning boards of appeals are directly given appellate jurisdiction by state law (NYS Town Law 267-b). This zoning enabling statute provides zoning boards of appeals with the power to hear and decide appeals from and review decisions of the administrative official responsible for the enforcement of the zoning regulations. The statute specifically allows the ZBA to reverse or affirm, wholly or partly, or to modify the decisions appealed to it. In short, the ZBA's appellate jurisdiction allows the board to interpret the municipality's zoning regulations.
