Development Review Board

Board Overview

The Development Review Board (DRB) is a quasi-judicial volunteer resident board that upholds the standards and procedures defined in the Winooski Zoning Ordinance. The DRB reviews and makes decisions on subdivisions, site plans, conditional uses, variances, and appeals of the Zoning Administrator’s determinations. The DRB has authority through Vermont State Statute Vermont Statute 24 VSA Chapter 117 and ensures due process, protects the rights of applicants, and rights of the public to participate in proposals for land development within the City. Appeals of decisions made by the DRB are heard by the Vermont Superior Court Environmental Division (VSCED) and the Vermont Supreme Court.
