The Zoning Board of Appeals conducts hearings wherein an applicant is appealing the determination of the Building Inspector. Usually, the Zoning Board will review applicant requests for a Use Variance or Area Variance. A variance, when granted by the Zoning Board of Appeals, gives the applicant the legal authority to do something otherwise not permitted under the existing zoning requirements. In reviewing cases, the Zoning Board must follow rules and regulations established under the Village Law and other applicable laws.

Parties may apply for a hearing before the Zoning Board of Appeals after receiving notice from the Building Department that a particular action is in violation of the zoning laws for the Village of Kenmore. Applicants need to pay a fee and forward a formal request for a hearing. The Letter of Request should include the following information:

1. Name and address of the owner/applicant
2. Property address
3. A description of the project for which the applicant is seeking a variance (i.e. house addition, signage for a business, etc.)
4. Copies of any property surveys

If the applicant is not the owner of the property, the Letter of Request must include a letter from the owner authorizing the applicant to seek relief from the Zoning Board of Appeals.

The Zoning Board of Appeals may require additional information before scheduling a hearing.

Once the Letter of Request is received, a hearing date will be set and the applicant will be notified. Hearings before the Zoning Board of Appeals are held in the Council Chambers of the Kenmore Municipal Building, 2919 Delaware Avenue, Kenmore, New York. Hearings generally take place at 5:30 PM. On the 4th Tuesday of the Month.

Notice of the Hearing will be published by the Village within 5 days of the Hearing. In addition, the Village of Kenmore will provide notice to surrounding properties located within 100 feet of the subject property. Hearings are open to the public.
