Zoning is the power of a local unit to establish reasonable requirements to guide and coordinate the present and future land use of the community. A zoning hearing board is appointed to hear and determine appeals from the zoning regulations, to decide on special exceptions and to authorize variances from the terms of the ordinance not contrary to public interest.
