Agendas & Minutes

Term of Office:

Typically 3 years, but up to the discretion of City Council. 

The Property Maintenance Code Board of Appeals allows citizens cited under the International Property Maintenance Code to appeal those decisions made by code officials, or the code officials’ interpretation or application of the Code. The Board does not hear appeals of the Code's requirements themselves. This Board was created March 12, 2007. The former Housing Board of Appeals and the Environmental Appeals panel were combined to create this Board, which was necessitated by the enactment of the International Property Maintenance Code (IMPC). The IPMC addresses both exterior property (environmental) and building issues.

Five members appointed by City Council. It is suggested that the Board be comprised of an attorney, a social worker, a person with construction background, and two citizens at-large. Members must reside within the Rock Hill City limits.


  • To consider and determine appeals whenever it is claimed that the true intent and meaning of the International Property Maintenance Code or any of its regulations has been wrongly interpreted.
  • To permit, in appropriate cases, extensions of time, in accordance with Section 10-203, Amendments to Property Maintenance Code.
Meeting Schedule:
The Board meets as called at the Housing and Neighborhood Services Department, located at 150 Johnston Street.
