PETITION FOR BUILDING CODE VARIANCE INSTRUCTIONS
Completion of this form is required by COMM 3.03(2) to request a variance from a building code or for approval of alternative design, which is not in strict conformance with the letter of the code but meets the intent of the code. (This form is the equivalent to the Department of Commerce form SBD-9890.) A variance is not a waiver from a code requirement. The petitioner must provide an equivalency which meets the intent of the code. Pictures, sketches, and plans may be submitted to support equivalency. If the proposed equivalency does not adequately safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of building occupants, frequenters, firefighters, etc., the variance will be denied. Failure to provide adequate information may delay the petition. A petition for variance does not take the place of a required plan review submittal. NOTE: A separate petition is required for each building and each code issue petitioned.
