Support the Boards SFPC Approval
Dear Chairman Carr and Members of the Board,
I am in support of the Board of Housing and Community Development decision to support adoption of the 2015 SFPC as currently approved by the board. The effort initiated by the board to remove the unenforceable provisions from the adopted model ICC Fire Code was a good decision and necessary to create a Virginia Statewide Fire Prevention Code that is easier to enforce in a uniform manner across the state. Therefore, I respectfully urge the Board to adopt the 2015 Virginia Statewide Fire Prevention Code as initially approved.
