Neighborhood Petition Process

A neighborhood petition is required to waive the restriction on certain uses being within 500' of residentially zoned land.

The applicant is required to follow BSEED's written procedure, to use the supplied petition forms, to pay appropriate fees, and to successfully secure the signatures of at least 2/3 (67%) of all those persons eligible to sign such petition.

Failure to obtain the required number of signatures means that the project may not proceed to site plan review or a public hearing.

Neighborhood Petitions must be picked up from the Zoning Division in Room 407.
