Candidate for

Zoning Board of Appeals

Joe Schwartz


The Zoning Board of Appeals considers applications from property owners for variances to Fairfield's Zoning regulations, for reasons of hardship. The only issue that should concern the ZBA in each case is equity: what is the landowner's hardship and how will approving the variance impact the neighborhood and the Town. I will be a fair judge in these matters.
