ID#21-3258 1  Business itemThe appeal of Sandra Meunier, owner, of the property at 1520 Minor Ln., to appeal the cited code violation of the Uniform Dwelling Code, section, SPS 321.04(2)(d), Stairways and elevated areas, as referenced by section 16.01(b) of the Waukesha Building Code. The existing home was built in 1970, therefore, the owner is permitted to appeal the requirements as allowed in code section 16.17 of the Waukesha Building Code. The appellant alleges the provisions of the code do not cover the ceiling height at landings that was permitted by code in effect at the time of construction. If the appeal is granted, the appeal would allow the ceiling height at the landing to be less than the required 6’4”. This would vary from the requirements of the Uniform Dwelling Code. SPS321.04(2)(d) Headroom. 1. Stairways shall be provided with a minimum headroom clearance of 76 inches measured vertically from a line parallel to the nosing of the treads to the ceiling, soffit, or any overhead obstruction directly above that line. 2. The headroom clearance shall be maintained over an intermediate landing.    Not available Not available
