TO EXPAND THE EXEMPTION FROM BUILDING RULES FOR FARM BUILDINGS TO INCLUDE FARM BUILDINGS USED FOR SPECTATOR EVENTS.
House amendment makes the following changes to 2nd edition.
Amends GS 143-138(b4)(1) to provide that a farm building will not be exempt from building rules if it is used for a spectator event at which 50 or more members of the public are present (was, more than 10 members of the public are present), unless the fire marshal of the county in which the building is located issues a permit in accordance with GS 153A-357 to the owner or lessee of the property (was, unless the person or organization responsible for the event established a fire watch for the duration of the event). Provides that approval will be granted after the fire marshal has verified that it is a temporary event, any outstanding unsafe conditions have been mitigated, and a fire watch has been established. Defines temporary as an event that is held in the building not more than four times per calendar year and the period of continuous use does not exceed 24 hours (was, temporary means that the spectator event and all other spectator events in the building have a total duration of no more than 120 hours in any calendar year).
