Established in 1932, the Board of Appeals (formerly Permit Appeals Board) is the last stop in the City’s decision making process for appeals regarding a wide range of City determinations involving permits, licenses and other entitlements.
The Board meets most Wednesday evenings in City Hall to hear and decide appeals involving the granting, denial, suspension, modification or revocation of permits and other entitlements issued by a wide range of City commissions and departments. The Board’s goal is to provide a public hearing and decision-making process that is efficient, fair and expeditious.
The Board of Appeals is comprised of five Board members appointed for staggered four-year terms. Three members are appointed by the Mayor and two by the President of the Board of Supervisors.
