The Village of Ballston Spa Zoning Board of Appeals Meeting takes place at 7 p.m. the fourth Wednesday of each month at 66 Front St., Ballston Spa.
The Ballston Spa Zoning board of appeals hears appeals, requests for interpretations and dimensional (e.g., restrictions governing setbacks or frontage, height, bulk or density) and use variances to existing zoning laws. A variance is permission from the zoning board of appeals to allow a deviation from the code or ordinance as it pertains to zoning matters — in other words, to bypass a law, code or ordinance, you require permission from the zoning board of appeals.
In the event that your building permit is denied, or that you know your proposed project will not meet Village zoning regulations, you may apply to the Zoning Board of Appeals for a variance. Please download, fill in, and submit the Zoning Board of Appeals application. Note: you may also have to attend a public hearing.
