The Washington Township Board of Adjustment
The Zoning Board of Adjustment is a nine member quasi-judicial board appointed by the Township Committee, two of who are alternate members. Regular members are appointed to four-year terms and alternate members to two-year terms. All members are residents of Washington Township and do not hold elected positions in the Township.
The purpose of the Zoning Board of Adjustment is to provide relief from Township zoning requirements that cannot be satisfied. The Zoning Board of Adjustment is charged with hearing applications for items such as relief from setback requirements for an addition, permission to build on lots without frontage on public streets, permission to allow uses not permitted in a particular zone, etc.
The Washington Township Zoning Board of Adjustment meets the first Wednesday of every month. All meetings are open to the public and public participation is encouraged
