Zoning Board of Appeals

** Per Executive Order 71 - Part 19 (in response to the COVID-19 Crisis): Electronic publication of notices as a substitute for published notice, clerk filings, and signage:

  • Any Covered Law requiring notice or notices to be published in a newspaper of general or substantial circulation is suspended and modified to allow a single notice to be published electronically on a municipality’s or agency’s website, provided (i) the earlier deadline required for publishing notice by the Covered Law is maintained for the electronic posting; and (ii) such posting must remain visible on the municipality’s or agency’s website until completion of the action, meeting, or proceeding for which such notice is provided, and for any notice of decision, for the duration of the applicable appeal period provided by the Covered Laws.
  • Any Covered Law requiring that a notice be filed in the office of any municipal clerk, including any town, city, borough, or district clerk, may be posted electronically on a municipality’s website, provided (i) the deadline required for posting remains unchanged, and (ii) such posting must remain visible on the municipality’s or agency’s web site until the completion of the action, meeting, or proceeding for which such notice is provided, and for any notice of decision, for the duration of the applicable appeal period provided by the Covered Laws.
  • Any Covered Law requiring a physical sign to be posted in relation to any zoning, inland wetlands, planning, or historic district petition, application or proposal, may be satisfied by electronic posting on a municipality’s website as described above.  

Given the above-referenced Executive Order, until further notice, no fees for Legal Notice publication (previously $200 per publication) will be collected on applications where an electronic notice can be used instead.  Please contact Mark Landolina, Zoning Enforcement Officer, at mlandolina@coventryct.org or Heidi Leech, Land Use Permit Technician, at hleech@coventryct.org for questions about permitting fees.


Materials and information pertaining to pending land use applications with either the Planning and Zoning Commission, Inland Wetlands Agency, or Zoning Board of Appeals will be posted on the Town website at least 24 hours prior to the meeting.
