The township has a five-member Zoning Board of Appeals to hear requests from citizens for relief from ordinances. Usually these requests have to do with variances, special use permits and other determinations. A variance is an approved departure from the normal requirements imposed by the local zoning ordinance. A variance is needed if construction, alteration, or occupancy of a structure will result in a violation of zoning requirements.

Typical requests to vary from Ordinance requirements might include:

-to build a structure closer to the property line or to a body of water 
-to erect a larger sign or 
-to construct fewer parking spaces
