Township of Monroe

Zoning Board

The Zoning Board of Adjustment is a quasi-judicial, nine-member Township Council appointed board that enforces compliance with the Township zoning ordinances that limit and regulate buildings and structures according to types and use.

They Board also regulates the nature and use of land for trade, industry, residence, open space and any other purposes. The height of buildings, the number of stories permitted, the size of buildings, lot size compliance and open space requirements are also regulated by zoning ordinances.

The Zoning Board also:

  • Maintains the standards for planned developments.
    Hears and decides requests for interpretation of zoning maps and ordinances.

  • Grants relief from provisions of positions of the Municipal Land Use Law due to the exceptional shape of the topography of a piece of property.

  • Grants variances from the zoning laws.
