That's not how it works here. There is no trial, and, in fact, an assurance
of anonimity of the accuser, lest people be afraid to complain.

I think the difference is regarding criminal charges vs. statutatory

That's not what the zoning board expects you to do if they tell you who
complains. They are afraid it will start/continue a neighborhood feud
that ends up on the six o'clock news.

Yep. Got one out by my farm... he bought this house on a 1/6th acre plot that
cost almost double what my farm did and he is particular about everything.
It's a shame my property got annexed by the city before I bought it. At least
