in town or district meeting. Provided, that no sum in excess of one 
hundred thousand dollars shall be so borrowed without vote of the 
city, town or district. Loans so effected shall not be included in 
determining the authorized limit of indebtedness of the municipality ; 
but such loans shall not exceed the amount of the funds so lost or

area of the lots included in such proposed change, or of those im- 
mediately adjacent in the rear thereof extending one hundred feet 
therefrom, or of those directly opposite thereto extending one hun- 
dred feet from the street frontage of such opposite lots, such amend- 
ment shall not become effective except by the favorable vote of three 
fourths of all the members of the legislative body of such munici- 
pality. The provisions of the previous section relative to public 
hearings and official notice shall apply equally to all changes or

office of the board and shall be a public record. 

Appeals to the board of adjustment may be taken by any person 
aggrieved or by any officer, department, board, or bureau of the ! 

municipality aft'ected by any decision of the administrative officer. j 

Stch appeal shall l^e taken within a reasonal)le time, as provided by

peal is taken and with the board of adjustment a notice of appeal |

is taken shall forthwith transmit to the board all the papers consti- 
tuting the record upon which the action appealed from was taken. 

An appeal stays all proceedings in furtherance of the action ap- 
pealed from, unless the officer from whom the appeal is taken certi- 
fies to the board of adjustment after notice of appeal shall have been 
filed with him that by reason of facts stated in the certificate a stay 
would, in his opinion, cause imminent peril to life or property. In j 

such case proceedings shall not be stayed otherwise than by a re- 
straining order which may be granted by the board of adjustment 



114 Chapter 92. [1925 

or by a court of record on application on notice to the officer from 
whom the appeal is taken and on due cause shown. 

The board of adjustment shall fix a reasonable time for the hear- 
ing of the appeal, give public notice thereof, as well as due notice to 
the parties in interest, and decide the same within a reasonable time. 
Upon the hearing any party may appear in person or by agent or b}' 
attorney. 

The board of adjustment shall have the follov^^ing powers : 

1. To hear and decide appeals where it is alleged there is error 
in any order, requirement, decision, or determination made Ijy an 
administrative official in the enforcement of this act or of an}- ordi- 
nance adopted pursuant thereto. 

2. To hear and decide special exceptions to the terms of the 
ordinance upon which such board is recjuired to pass under such 
ordinance. 

3. To authorize upon appeal in specific cases such variance from 
the terms of the ordinance as will not be contrary to the public in- 
terest, where, owing to special conditions, a literal enforcement of 
the provisions of the ordinance will result in unnecessary hardship, 
and so that the spirit of the ordinance shall be observed and sub- 
stantial justice done. 

In exercising the above-mentioned powers such board may, in con- 
formity with the provisions of this act, reverse or affirm, wholly or 
partly, or may modify the order, requirement, decision, or deter- 
mination appealed from and may make such order, requirement, 
decision, or determination as ought to be made, and to that end shall 
have all the powers of the officer from whom the appeal is taken. 

The concurring vote of four members of the board shall be neces- 
sary to reverse any order, requirement, decision, or determination 
of any such administrative official, or to decide in favor of the ap- 
plicant on any matter upon which it is required to pass under any 
such ordinance, or to effect any variation in such ordinance. 

Any person or persons, jointly or severally, aggrieved by any de- 
cision of the board of adjustment, or any decision of the legislative 
body of such municipality in regard to its plan of zoning, or any 
taxpayer, or any officer, department, board or bureau of the munici- 
pality may present to the superior court a petition, duly verified, 
setting forth that such decision is illegal or unreasonable, in whole 
or in part, specifying the grounds upon which the same is claimed to 
be illegal or unreasonable. Such petition shall be presented to the 
court within thirty days after the filing of such decision in the office 
of the board. The court shall direct the record in the matter ap- 
pealed from to be laid before it, and shall hear the evidence of all 
parties in relation thereto, and shall make such order approving, 
modifying or setting aside the decision appealed from as justice may 
require, and may make a new order as a substitute for the order of 



1925] Chapter 92. 115 

the board. The tiUng of a petition shall not stay proceedings upon 
the decision appealed from, but the court may, on application, on 
notice to the board and on due cause shown, grant a restraining 
order. 

The board of adjustment shall not be required to return the orig- 
inal papers acted upon by it, but it shall be sufficient to return certi- 
fied or sworn copies thereof or of such portions thereof as may be 
called for by such writ. The return shall concisely set forth such 
other facts as may be pertineiit and material to show the grounds of 
the decision appealed from and shall be verified. 

If, upon the hearing, it shall appear to the court that testimony 
is necessary for the proper disposition of the matter, it may take 
evidence or appoint a referee to take such evidence as it may direct 
and report the same to the court with his findings of fact and con- 
clusions of law, which shall constitute a part of the proceedings 
upon which the determination of the court shall be made. The court 
may reverse or affirm, wholly or partly, or may modify the decision 
brought up for review. 

Costs shall not be allowed against the board unless it shall appear 
to the court that it acted with gross negligence, or in bad faith, or 
with malice in making the decision appealed from. 

All issues in any proceedings under this section shall have pref- 
erence over all other civil actions and proceedings. 

Sect. 8. Remedies. In case any building or structure is erected, ^"^J^^^J^^^'^^j^j^jj^j^ 
constructed, reconstructed, altered, repaired, converted, or main- of regulations, 
tained, or any building, structure, or land is used in violation of this 
act or of any ordinance or other regulation made under authority 
conferred hereby, the proper local authorities of the municipality, in 
addition to other remedies, may institute any appropriate action or 
proceedings to prevent such unlawful erection, construction, recon- 
struction, alteration, repair, conversion, maintenance, or use, to re- 
strain, correct, or abate such violation, to prevent the occupancy 
of said building, structure, or land, or to prevent any illegal act, 
conduct, business, or use in or about such premises.
