Boards & Commissions

Construction Advisory and Appeals Board

Administered by the Building Safety Department; nine board members; meets as needed, but when a meeting is called, normally it will be at 3:30 PM on a Thursday in City Hall, 509 East 7th Avenue, 3rd floor, Room 306.

The CAAB was created in 1995 to combine the functions of, and replace the four construction trade boards, which existed at that time. Those were; the Board of Electrical Examiners and Appeals, the Building Board Appeals, the Heating and Air Conditioning Advisory and Appeals Board, and the Plumbing Advisory and Appeals Board.

The CAAB makes recommendations for the adoption, improvement, enforcement, and administration of nationally recognized model codes including the National Electrical Code (NEC), the International Building Code (IBC), the International Residential Code (IRC), the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), the International Fire Code (IFC), the International Mechanical Code (IMC), the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC), and the Uniform Swimming Pool and Hot Tub Code. Also included is the local Advertising Sign Code. Recommendations for local amendments and standards as well as permit and licensing standards associated with those codes are developed by the board and staff and forwarded to the City Commission for their consideration as ordinance amendments. The CAAB also acts in an appeals capacity regarding the decisions of the Building Official and Fire Marshall as the decisions concern building construction and fire prevention issues. Either official's decision may be appealed to the CAAB and affirmed, modified or overturned. The CAAB may consider appeals regarding interpretations and applications of the above referenced codes, and to consider alternative means of compliance and alternative materials and methods of construction not addressed by those codes.
