What do I do if I feel that I can not comply with building code requirements?

Consult with the Building Official to determine the extent of the relief necessary. Following that determination you may file an appeal with the North Kingstown Building Code Board of Appeal. The Board will meet the first Wednesday of each month to hear appeals of the State Building Code and the Rhode Island Property Maintenance Code. Applications are available in the Building Official's Office.
