ZBA Seeks Applicants
The select board is accepting applications for a vacancy on the zoning board of appeals. According to an announcement on the town’s website, candidates are being sought for an unexpired five-year term and/or an alternate member with a one-year term. Both terms would expire on June 30, 2024.
The ZBA is a regulatory board that conducts hearings on requests for variances and special permits. It works specifically with the town’s zoning bylaws, interpreting them and making judgments about their intent.
Recently, for example, the board held a hearing on Robert Martin’s controversial landscaping business on Route 6. The board considered local zoning bylaws and Cape Cod National Seashore regulation in its deliberation.
The board meets remotely, either once or twice per month, on Mondays.
Because the ZBA is a regulatory board, candidates must be year-round residents registered to vote in Truro. The application to serve is linked on the town’s website and asks candidates about their relevant experience and whether they have familiarized themselves with the board’s charge, attended meetings, and met with its chair. Members are appointed by the select board. The deadline to apply is Nov. 22 at noon. —Sophie Mann-Shafir
