Middletown's Zoning Board of Appeals has jurisdiction over:
- Appeals: Where it has been charged that there is an error by the Building Inspector or the Zoning Enforcement Officer in the enforcement of the zoning regulations.
- Application for a variance from the terms of the regulations where, because of special conditions a literal enforcement of the ordinance would result in a practical difficulty or unnecessary hardship. This hardship should be peculiar to the specific application and the variance, if granted, should be in harmony with the comprehensive plan and not contrary to the public welfare.
- The location of motor vehicle dealers or repairers and gasoline stations.
The role of the Zoning Board of Appeals is deemed quasi-judicial in nature and most of the cases pertain to variances. At no time is it within the scope of the Zoning Board of Appeals' power to hear an appeal on a decision of the Planning and Zoning Commission.
