Administrative Notices

Since 2018, the Board has been posting to its website and emailing the applicant community a series of “Administrative Notices.” These notices clarify policies that the Board has been developing over the last several months and provide clearer guidance about application expectations. Some of these notices modify prior practices to respond to recently passed legislation affecting the Board or to changes in construction codes or zoning regulations. Others improve upon past practices. The Board welcomes applicants' constructive comments on the substance of the notices. Some notices will require tweaking once the Board has had the opportunity to evaluate their effectiveness and clarity. Eventually, the Administrative Notices will be consolidated into the Board's forms and instructions or promulgated as rules.
