The Building and Housing Board of Appeals was established upon the adoption of Ordinance No. 2151 at the April 5, 2004 City Council Meeting. The Board consists of five members who serve four-year terms of office.
The Building and Housing Board of Appeals hears and decides appeals of orders, decisions, or determinations made by the Chief Building Official relative to the application and interpretation of the Merced Municipal Code, including all Building Code, Housing Code, Administrative Code, Electrical Code, Mechanical Code, Plumbing Code, Fire Prevention Code, and Abatement of Dangerous Buildings Code. In appropriate cases, an appeals process also provides the City and the citizens an opportunity to resolve significant code enforcement and compliance issues without, or prior to, the need to resort to further legal action.
