Appointments made to two Concord boards
At its meeting on April 11, the Concord City Council made appointments to the Design Review Board and Board of Appeals.
Design Review Board: Kirk Shelby and Ross Wells were appointed to the Design Review Board to four-year terms ending February 28, 2021.
The Design Review Board reviews the design of each improvement for which a building permit, certificate, or other approval is required and any matter referred to the Board by the Planning Commission, Zoning Administrator or Planning Manager. For more information on the Design Review Board, contact Ryan Lenhardt, Senior Planner, at (925) 671-3162.
Board of Appeals: Matt Trost and Robert Mills were appointed to the remainder of four-year terms ending on February 28, 2019; David Hoover, Erric Castillo and Cesar Sifuentes were appointed to four-year terms ending on February 28, 2021; and Suzanne Alaksa was appointed as an alternate with a four-year term ending February 28, 2021.
The five-member and two-alternate Board of Appeals meets as needed to interpret State law and the California Building Standards Code pertaining to construction standards for the City. Members make a determination of suitable alternate materials and methods of construction and hear appeals of orders, decisions, and determinations made by the City’s Chief Building Official. Decisions of the Board are final and may not be appealed to the City Council. For more information on the Board of Appeals contact Chief Building Official Robert Woods at (925) 671-3119.
