Establishment
There shall be a Zoning Board of Appeals consisting of five (5) members appointed by the Town Council for three (3) year staggered terms.

  2. The Board shall hear and decide Variance Appeals in specific cases where a relaxation of the terms of the Zoning Ordinance would not be contrary to the public interest and where owing to conditions peculiar to the property and not the result of the actions of the applicant, a literal enforcement of the Zoning Ordinance would result in unnecessary or undue hardship.

  4. The Board shall perform its duties and be governed by Title 30-A M.R.S.A. Section 2691 and the Town of Gray Zoning Ordinance, Section 402.32.
