The Zoning Board of Appeals is made up of a 5 member Board of Village residents. The Zoning Board of Appeals is the authorizing body to determine whether to grant or deny variance applications. The ZBA balances the hardship to the application, the community and other persons of not granting the variance against the adverse impact on the health, safety and welfare of persons affected, the adverse impact on the property affected and any other adverse impacts of granting the special variance.
Beginning Monday, December 14, 2020, all Village Zoning Board of Appeals meetings will be held virtually via Zoom. All meeting materials will be posted the Friday before the meeting. Any public comments should be emailed directly to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 6pm on the day of the scheduled meeting. Meetings will be livestreamed on the Village of Colonie YouTube page. If you have any questions, please contact Zoning Coordinator Julianne Okun at 518-869-7562. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
