The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) is a five-member board that hears petitions for Special Permits, Variances, and those projects requiring Site-Plan Review.
Persons wishing to be heard by the ZBA need to accurately and completely fill out an application (available at Building Dept. or on-line) and submit it to the Town Clerk together with all required information, proper number of copies and a check to the Town of Middleton for the prescribed fee. Applications are due 24 days prior to the next scheduled meeting and additional information submitted during the review of any project is due 7 days before the next scheduled meeting.
Karen Matsubara is available from 8AM-4PM to answer your questions and help you with the application (Tel. 978-777-8917). The Building Commissioner is also available to help you. It is imperative that your application be complete and correct as the Board will automatically deny incomplete applications.
