RE: 97 UBC Adoption date to Debbie et al

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
State law precludes a Jurisdiction from adopting the building code until
after the state first adopts it.  Then the local jurisdiction has up to 180
days to adopt it with more restrictive amendments due to geologic, climatic
and topographic concerns.  If at the end of 180 days the jurisdiction has
not adopted it, the state code then goes into affect.  The current date the
state is giving for adopting the 1997 UBC is Jan. 1, 1999.

Ted -- When you said "...does not ALLOW the adoption..." did you mean that
the Town "can't" force us to adopt earlier than 180 days after publication?
