ZBA Tie Vote is Not a Default Denial When Exercising Original  Jurisdiction, Holds Third Department

In Matter of Alper Restaurant Inc. v Town of Copake Zoning Board of Appeals, the Third Department holds that a Town ZBA’s tie vote does not result in a default denial when it is exercising original jurisdiction to consider a special use permit. The default denial provisions only apply when a ZBA is exercising appellate jurisdiction.
