The County established a Countywide Board of Appeals for the Uniform Construction Code in 2007. This code is Part of Act 45, which was passed in 1999. As set forth within Act 45, every municipality that adopts the Uniform Construction Code must have an Appeals Board to handle appeals to the Code. Due to the difficulty of staffing such a board in some municipalities, it was suggested to take a regional approach to this requirement. To date, many municipalities within the County have expressed interest in being a part of this Board. This is an opportunity for a municipality to be served by the Countywide Board.
