The Zoning Board of Adjustment consists of seven regular members and two alternate members, residents of Ewing Township and appointed by the Township Council. Regular members are appointed for four year terms and alternates are appointed for two year terms.  Members may not hold elective offices in the municipality.


Alternate members shall be designated at the time of their appointment as "Alternate No. 1" and "Alternate No. 2."  Alternate members may participate in the discussions of the proceedings but may not vote except in the absence or disqualification of a regular member.  A vote shall not be delayed in order that a regular member may vote instead of an alternate member. If a choice must be made as to which alternate is to vote, "Alternate No. 1" shall vote.

The Board, however, shall not authorize expenditures which exceed, exclusive of gifts or grants, the amount appropriated by the governing body for its use.
