Perhaps in response to the report by Councilor Wu that went to Mayor Walsh and the Boston City Council, the ZBA will be changing their hours starting August 5.
From a press release posted today on cityofboston.gov:
Mayor Martin J. Walsh and the City of Boston’s Inspectional Services Department (ISD) have directed the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) to extend its hearing hours. Effective August 5, 2014, ZBA hearings will go from half days to full days. The hearings will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 4:00 p.m. every other Tuesday until further notice.
