The Building Board of Appeals provides guidance to the Building Division in interpreting state and local building codes. The Board meets on an as-needed basis when there are conflicts over the applicability of the building code or to discuss the suitability of particular building materials.

Created by AMC 18.14.030, members consist of citizens who are qualified by experience and training to pass on matters pertaining to building construction and who are not City employees.  Members are appointed by the City Council at-large.
