The Board's purpose is to help assure fair and equitable application and administration of the Borough's Zoning Ordinance by hearing appeals on the Zoning Officer's decisions and granting relief from the literal interpretation of the ordinance in certain hardship situations. Unlike other boards and commissions, the Zoning Hearing Board has no legislative power; it can neither make nor modify zoning policy. Rather, it is a quasi-judicial body and its powers are somewhat judicial in nature.
