Building Board of Appeals

The function of the Board of Appeals is to hear and decide appeals of orders, decisions, or determinations made by the Building Official relative to the application and interpretation of the Town adopted Codes. The Building Official is a non-voting, ex-officio member of the Board.
The Board of Appeals has no authority relative to interpretation of the administrative provisions of the Code, nor is the Board empowered to waive requirements of the Code.
Requesting an Appeal
The person requesting the appeal (appellant) needs to submit a petition form to the Town Clerk; the petition is forwarded to the Board of Appeals. The Board adopts its own rules of procedures for conducting its business, and meetings are called when necessary. A $100.00 fee is due when submitting the petition.
A written request to appeal a field decision should be submitted to the Town of Johnstown Building Official at the following address:

Planning and Zoning Commission

The Johnstown Planning and Zoning Commission is a committee of seven residents who have been appointed by the Town Council to review matters related to planning and development. This Commission also serves as the Board of Adjustment and Board of Appeals. The Commission meets on a regular, as-required basis to consider land use matters, including  the Comprehensive Land Use Plan, sub-area specific plans, and to hold public hearings regarding property-specific annexations, special use permits, and subdivisions. The Commission is an advisory body and makes recommendations to the Town Council. Because the Commission focuses on community planning issues, it is a valuable intermediary between the public and the Town Council.  The Planning & Development Department provides research and technical and administrative support to the Commission.
