Building Trades Board


The Building Trades Board is composed of seven members and two alternate members who must be Volusia County residents. The seven regular members must have knowledge and experience in technical codes, such as design professionals, contractors, or building industry representatives.

Of the two alternate members, one must be a member at large from the building industry and one must be a member at large from the public. No member may serve more than two consecutive terms unless waived by the New Smyrna Beach City Commission.


The Board makes determinations regarding the condemnation of structures within the limits of new Smyrna Beach and recommends amendments to various codes and regulatory standards that bear upon the construction industry and building trades in general.
