The Harwinton Zoning Board of Appeals, among other duties, holds public hearings to determine and vary the application of the zoning bylaws, ordinances or regulations in harmony with their general purpose and intent and with due consideration for public health, safety, welfare, and property values, where, owing to conditions especially affecting a parcel of land but not affecting generally the district or zone in which it is situated, a literal enforcement of such bylaws, ordinances or regulations would result in exceptional and unusual hardship. Any variance granted by the Zoning Board of Appeals runs with the land and is not personal in nature to the person who applies for or receives the variance.
When there is an application for a variance, an appeal to the Zoning Board of Appeals or an application for the location of an auto repair and/or dealership, legal notice is published in the Republican American and a public hearing and regular meeting are held the second Wednesday of the month at the Town Hall at 7:00 p.m.
