The Board of Appeals consists of three members plus one alternate appointed by the the Council of Trappe for a term of office of three years. Members of the Board of Appeals may be removed from office by the Council of Trappe for cause upon written charges after pubic hearing. Vacancies are filled by the Council of Trappe for the unexpired terms of any member whose term becomes vacant.

The Appeals Board hears requests for Special Exceptions and Variances that may be allowed under the provisions of the Trappe Zoning Ordinance. One may also appeal permit denials and other decisions of the Planning Commission and/or Zoning Administrator to an Administrative Review. Special exceptions, variances, and administrative reviews are each quite different, and are often referred to collectively as “appeals”. Find out more by clicking on the links above.
