Zoning Hearing Board

Eugene Alex


The Newport Borough Zoning Hearing Board consist of three appointed member serving four-year terms. Its responsibilities include the hearing of requests for variances, special exceptions, appeals. According to Pennsylvania law, the Zoning Hearing Board cannot interpret the Zoning Ordinance, it can only uphold the law of the provisions of the Zoning Ordinance.

The Zoning Hearing Board considers the requests submitted for compliance with the Zoning Ordinance and takes into consideration the degree of hardship and impact on the neighborhoods in making its decisions.

The Zoning Ordinance is established by the council, and amendments and changes in zoning designation are not the responsibilities of the Zoning Hearing Board, but rather that of the Borough council.

The Newport Borough Zoning Hearing Board meets in the Borough Office when a variance is requested.
