The Zoning Hearing Board (ZHB) meets the 3rd Monday of each month at 6:00 PM in the Bare Center- Lower Level at the Guthrie Library, 2 Library Place, Hanover, PA.

THE DEADLINE FOR ZHB APPLICATION SUBMISSION is as follows:

Complete application packets must be received AND accepted by 4:00 PM on the 3rd Monday, PRIOR to the month in which the application would be heard by the ZHB. This is to allow staff and Planning Commission adequate time to review and provide feedback.
