In addition, there is a $50 penalty if you are appealing an Order to Cease and Desist on an action prior the issuance of a zoning permit. The office staff must see the Order or Denial to determine the cost. See Fees under  Forms & Fees for specifics.

Can I mail in my filing fee and statement after I fill out my application?
Yes. However, the filing fee must accompany the application in order to reserve a date and time for the appeal hearing. Be aware that an appeal must be filed within 15 days of the date of the Order or Denial.
