Meetings are open to the public and are held at 7:00 p.m. on the first Tuesday of the month in the Dryden Town Hall. ZBA meetings are held as needed – only when there is a Zoning Variance Application for them to review. This group’s purpose is to hear appeals for changes in the Town Zoning Ordinance where strict conformity would result in unnecessary hardship.

Official minutes are kept in the Town Clerk’s office.
Some minutes are available online.
