Town to Hold Remote Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) Hearings
North Hempstead, NY – The Town of North Hempstead has announced that beginning Wednesday, October 20, 2021, the Town’s Board of Zoning Appeals hearings will be held remotely via video conference to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Town officials are reminding residents that the Town Board room will not be open to the public and there will be no in person access to the meeting.
New York State Governor Kathy Hochul signed legislation in the beginning of September to permit virtual public meetings to reduce the spread of the Delta variant.

Those who have questions regarding the hearing or wish to submit written comments or questions regarding a particular item on the calendar may contact the board at: email@example.com. Written comments must be received 60 minutes prior to the meeting. The full list of cases for this calendar may be obtained at www.northhempsteadny.gov.
This hearing will be transcribed, and a copy of the transcript will be made available on the Town
website. This hearing will also be live streamed. Live streaming can be accessed
