Cooperative ZBA Member Towns:
Florence – Montague – Osceola – Pinckney – Turin
Because of the size of the communities that are part of the Cooperative ZBA, it is physically and fiscally difficult to maintain separate Boards of Appeals in each town.
Pursuant to Section 284 of NYS Town Law and Article 5G of NYS General Municipal Law, towns can establish a cooperative zoning board of appeals through an inter-municipal agreement.
Each member town is allowed to select one representative from its town to be a member on the Cooperative ZBA. This person is appointed by their respective town board for a 5 year term.
The Cooperative ZBA is charged with hearing applications for interpretations and the granting of use and area variances upon application for any of the member towns.
