Building Department

In accordance with state law, the Construction Board of Appeals hears appeals and renders interpretations on construction code related issues within the township.  The board is comprised of five members representing diverse technical experience in the fields of building, electrical, plumbing and mechanical construction. 

If the Building Department refuses to grant an application for a construction permit, or makes any other decision pursuant to or related to construction codes, an interested person may appeal to the Construction Board of Appeals.
Applications for appeals shall be based on a claim that:
  • The true intent of the applicable code has not been incorrectly interpreted.
  • The provisions of the code do not fully apply.
  • An equally good or better form of construction is proposed.

The Construction Board of Appeals meets only upon application for an appeal.  Meetings are usually held during normal business hours, typically on Wednesday mornings, but may be held at other times upon approval of the Board.  The process normally takes approximately two weeks.
