ZBA Seeks Alternate
The zoning board of appeals, which meets monthly, is looking to fill an alternate position for the final four months of a term that would end on June 30. The vacancy was announced last week following the resignation of alternate member Curtis Hartman.
The ZBA is a seven-member (including two alternates) board that hears applications for variances from provisions of the zoning bylaw and for special permits required by the bylaw for specific uses or activities. All Truro taxpayers are eligible to apply. Members are appointed by the select board.
“There is no required experience per se,” said Assistant Town Manager Kelly Clark. The application, available online, “asks some pretty clear questions,” she said. Those include why applicants want to join the board and whether they’ve read what the board is charged with doing, attended a meeting, and met the chair.
Clark said that once applications have been filed the ZBA chair, Arthur F. Hultin Jr., may want to meet with candidates in order to make an appointment recommendation to the select board. —Sophie Mann-Shafir
