ARTICLE XXI - APPEALS TO THE BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT
(Adopted March 14, 1989)
Appeals to the Board of Adjustment shall be processed in accordance with the provisions of RSA 676:5 and 676:6 as amended.
1. Appeals to the Board of Adjustment may be taken by any person aggrieved or by any officer, department, board, or bureau of the municipality affected by any decision of the administrative officer. Such appeal shall be taken within
a reasonable time thirty (30) days (Adopted March 10, 2005), as provided by the rules of the Board, by filing with the officer from whom the appeal is taken and with the Board a notice of appeal specifying the grounds thereof. The officer from whom the appeal is taken shall forthwith transmit to the Board all the papers constituting the record upon which the action appealed from was taken.
An appeal stays all proceedings under the action appealed from, unless the officer from whom the appeal is taken certifies to the Board of Adjustment, after notice of appeal shall have been filed with him, that, by reason of facts stated in the certificate a stay would, in his opinion, cause imminent peril to life or property. In such case, the proceedings shall not be stayed otherwise than by a restraining order which may be granted by the Board or by the Superior Court on notice to the officer from whom the appeal is taken and cause shown.
