The Building Safety Department oversees two advisory and appeals boards: The Construction Advisory and Appeals Board (CAAB) and the Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA).
The CAAB hears appeals of decisions of the Building Official and the Fire Marshal related to the enforcement of building, electrical, fire, HVAC, plumbing and sign codes adopted by the City. The CAAB also determines whether alternate construction materials and methods, not otherwise approved by the codes or Building Official, are acceptable. As an advisory board the City Commission, the CAAB develops recommendations for the adoption of the new editions of the codes and for amendments to the same.
The ZBA hears appeals of decisions of the Building Official and hears variance requests as they both apply to the requirements of the Zoning Ordinance. Hearings are scheduled monthly if there are cases to be heard.
