Board of Zoning Appeal Requests

Variances and Special Permits with status of under review, approved, denied or withdrawn. Cambridge's Board of Zoning Appeal hears and decides appeals, applications for special permits, and appeals and petitions for variances from the terms of the Cambridge Zoning Ordinance. This dataset includes available records from October 1, 2013 through current. This dataset does not currently include data from a relatively small number of cases with the type "appeal," because these cases are structured differently from the more common variance and special permit type cases.
