Regular City Council Meeting
Ordinance 2nd Reading - Building Safety:
Consider Ordinance No. 2020-O0016, amending Article 28.09 of the City of Lubbock Code of Ordinances, with regard to the adoption of the 2015 International Building Code governing the construction, maintenance, and repair of buildings other than one and two-family dwellings.
On January 28, 2020, the City Council approved the first reading of the ordinance.
The International Building Code is the City's adopted "model" building code, and governs the construction, maintenance and repair of buildings, other than one and two-family dwellings, throughout the jurisdiction. The Code is promulgated by the International Code Council, updated triennially through a legislative process involving input and voting by member jurisdictions nationwide, and further amended by the City of Lubbock to suit unique local conditions. The proposed ordinance updates the document from the 2012 Edition to the 2015 Edition, and maintains several local amendments approved by staff and the Model Codes and Construction Advisory Board. Staff finds no conflict between said local amendments and the provisions of House Bill 2439.
