Steven A. Elmore
Santa Cruz—Effective July 24, 1999, Steven A. Elmore’s architect license number C-10809 was revoked; however, the revocation was stayed, his license was suspended for 90 days, and he was placed on probation for five years with specific terms and conditions, including reimbursing the Board $4,272 for investigative costs. An Accusation was filed against Mr. Elmore for violations of Business and Professions Code section 5536 (Practice without License or Holding Self Out as Architect). On December 31, 1991, Mr. Elmore’s license expired and was not renewed until December 31, 1996. The action was taken based on evidence that in November 1993 and June 1994, he entered into contracts to perform architectural services. On March 29, 1995, Board staff informed him that his license had expired, and that he was prohibited by law from practicing and/or representing himself as an architect until he renewed his license. On April 5, 1995, he contacted the Board and indicated that he would promptly mail his renewal fee, but failed to do so. In November 1995, the Board received information that he signed an architectural contract to design a house.
