The MPC provides for the establishment of zoning hearing boards where municipalities have enacted a zoning ordinance pursuant to the enabling laws.

The Board consists of 3 members and 1 Alternate, each of whom is a full-time resident and qualified elector of the Township of Upper St. Clair. Members are appointed by the Board of Commissioners to serve for a 3-year term.
