Volunteers Sought For Board Of Adjustment, Historic Preservation

By on January 25, 2018

Township Manager Matthew Cavallo announced at Monday night’s Town Council meeting that there are openings for volunteer members on both the Board of Adjustment and the Historic Preservation Commission.

There is one opening for a full-time member on the Board of Adjustment, after recent resignation this month of Mike Zichelli, who had served on that board for more than three decades. The Board of Adjustment reviews applications from property owners seeking to use a property in a way that is not consistent with Verona zoning laws. The Board of Adjustment meets on the second Thursday of each month at 8 p.m. at the Verona Community Center Ballroom. This is for a full term, which will expire in June 2021. You can learn more about what the Board of Adjustment does here.

There are two openings on Historic Preservation, one for a full member and the other for an alternate. Historic Preservation helps to identify and preserve Verona landmarks and historical sites. Cavallo noted that people interested in serving on this commission must be knowledgeable in building design and architecture. While Verona does not forcibly landmark any property, the commission has helped property owners seeking landmark status with that work, including the Verona United Methodist Church and the former Erie Railroad freight depot. You can read more about this commission, which was originally called Landmarks Preservation, here. Historic Preservation’s meeting schedule for 2018 has not yet been posted.

The form to fill out and submit to apply for any of these positions is here. You can also use it to submit an application to any of the other boards and the town clerk will keep it on file until a spot opens up.
