Huntington's Zoning Board of Appeals consists of seven (7) members, all residents of the Town appointed by the Huntington Town Board to terms of services in accord with State and local law. In most cases, applications before the ZBA  deal with requests by property owners for relief from the Town Code where literal enforcement of Zoning restriction would deprive the property owner of reasonable benefit or cause unnecessary hardship.  The ZBA acts in accordance with the powers granted in statute as well as by prior legal precedent.
