The Board of Appeals/Building Advisory Committee (BOA/BAC) serves primarily as an advisory body to the Building Official, who also staffs the group. When needed, the group provides advice on specific building issues to the Town Council. The group also functions as an appeal board for those appealing orders, decisions, or determinations made by the Building Official (PDF) in particular subject areas. (CBC Section 113)

Members - Terms. The BOA/BAC consists of seven members who are "qualified by knowledge, experience, and training regarding construction and code compliance and shall pass judgment upon matters pertaining to same." Members serve a term of four years. Members are eligible for re-appointment. No term limits apply to the BOA/BAC.

Functions, powers, and duties. The BOA/BAC performs the following functions as stipulated by its Rules of Procedure (PDF) adopted by the Town Council in 1987, said duties include:

  • Hear and decide appeals of orders, decisions, or determinations made by the Building Official relative to the application and interpretation of codes and/or related Town ordinances. The Board shall have no authority relative to interpretation of the administrative provisions on the Uniform Building Code nor shall the Board be empowered to waive requirements of this code. (CBC Section 113.2)
  • Act in an advisory capacity to the Town Council and/or Mammoth Lakes Building (Division). The Board shall provide in writing interpretations and opinions on building code items not specifically addressed in the Uniform Building Code and issue interpretations and opinions based on conditions (geographical or climatic) unique to the Mammoth Lakes area.

Meetings. Regular meetings are held quarterly, usually on the fourth Wednesday of the months of February, May, August, and November at 3:00 p.m. in the Main Conference Room of the Town Offices. At their first meeting of each year, the group establishes their schedule of meetings.
