The function of the Board of Appeals is to hear and decide appeals of orders, decisions, or determinations made by the Building Official relative to the application and interpretation of the Town adopted Codes. The Building Official is a non-voting, ex-officio member of the Board.
The Board of Appeals has no authority relative to interpretation of the administrative provisions of the Code, nor is the Board empowered to waive requirements of the Code.
Requesting an Appeal
The person requesting the appeal (appellant) needs to submit a petition form to the Town Clerk; the petition is forwarded to the Board of Appeals. The Board adopts its own rules of procedures for conducting its business, and meetings are called when necessary. A $100.00 fee is due when submitting the petition.
A written request to appeal a field decision should be submitted to the Town of Johnstown Building Official at the following address:
Town of Johnstown Building Department
P.O. Box 609
Johnstown, CO 80534
