Building Code Appeals Board

Permit and Licensing Application Forms

This is a five member board comprised of professional engineers, architects and building contractors.  The Board hears and rules on matters appealing a decision of the Director of the Division of Plan Review & Permitting regarding the Washington County Building Code.

Appeals must be based on a claim that the Code or rules have been incorrectly interpreted, the provisions of the Code do not fully apply, or an equivalent form of construction is to be used.

Staff support to the Building Code Appeals Board is Becky Gander. She can be reached at 240-313-2466 or email Becky.

The Building Code Board of Appeals meets the second Friday of every month as appeals are received. Meetings are held at the office of the Division of Plan Review & Permitting, 80 W. Baltimore Street, Hagerstown, MD at 8:00 a.m.
