Board of Appeals

The Board works with the City's Inspections Department on construction-related and design-related code issues. The Board's work focuses on two main areas:

  • Advising the Fargo City Commission on changes to the codes or adoption of new codes.
  • Requests for interpretation of codes from members of the public who feel the Inspections Department has made an error in applying a code requirement.

If you would like to file an appeal on a code issue, submit the Appeal Request Form along with $150 filing fee to the Inspections Department. Your request will be placed on the next meeting agenda providing we have received your request at least 10 days prior to the next regularly scheduled meeting.
