The Construction Board of Adjustment and Appeals was established to hear appeals of decisions and interpretations made by the building official and to consider variances to the adopted technical building codes. Creation of the board is authorized under Section 108 of the Standard Building Code and under the city’s code of ordinances. Appointed by city council, most board members have knowledge and experience in the adopted technical building codes working as design professionals, contractors, or building industry representatives. One member represents the general public. Two of the nine board members serve as alternate members at-large.
