Building Appeals Board

The building appeals board is established “in order to hear and decide appeals of orders, decisions or determinations made by the building official relating to the application and interpretation” of the City adopted building codes. See Section 113, Board of Appeals of the International Building Code (IBC).

The International Building Code requires that a board be established to hear appeals of decisions pertaining to building code standards. Typically those decision are made by the Chief Building Official when reviewing a building permit or when enforcing the building code as construction is occurring.


Questions pertaining to the city adopted building code should be addressed to the Chief Building Official.


The building appeals board meets as needed.


The board of appeals shall consist of members who are qualified by experience and training to pass of matters pertaining to building construction and are not employees of the jurisdiction (IBC Section 113.3)
