The City is in the process of updating its building codes to the 2009
International Building Code. The city is currently operating under the
2006 IBC. One of the goals in updating to the 2009 code is to support a
county-wide effort for all municipalities and the County to adopt the
2009 IBC for consistency in building code standards. The City’s first
step will be to adopt the Residential Code for One- and Two-Family
Dwellings. The city plans to adopt this by Ordinance at the Feb.
24, 2011 meeting.
Review of the City’s proposed 2009 International Residential Code has
included a varied group of stakeholders including, but not limited to,
builders, engineers, architects, building code officials, fire service
representatives, utility representatives and various sub-contractor
building construction/trade groups.
