Members of the Zoning Board of Appeals are appointed by the Board of Selectmen and consist of 3 full members and 3 associate members, each with 3 year terms.

Each member is assigned a case on a rotating basis. Membership can be very time consuming if many applications for appeals are pending. Extra meetings are then required and some outside work is necessary.
