Community Development Department
The Building Division is responsible for ensuring all new structures and major remodel work on existing structures are built to the nationally recognized standards in the International Building and Fire Code(s).
The goal for the Building Division is to have construction in the City designed and built structurally sound and free of any major life safety hazards. Accomplishing this goal requires staff to engage in all phases of a building's life cycle - - from initial questions about the building posed at the Community Development counter in City Hall to major repair and retrofitting projects to demolitions resulting in a building's life cycle starting over again.
