Sometimes a parcel of property is properly zoned, but the proposed development cannot, for a number of legitimate reasons, occur without a special exception approval or without a variance in one or more requirements. Requests for variances in zoning requirements and special exceptions are heard by the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA).
