Building and Construction Code Update

The City of North Kansas City is proposing to update building, construction and fire codes; Title-15 Buildings and Construction and Title- 8, Chapter 8.36 International Fire Code. Public comments are being accepted until April 30, 2018. Comments may be submitted by completing the form at the bottom of this page. A public hearing will be held prior to consideration for approval by the City Council. It is anticipated that applicants will have the ability to choose between either the current adopted codes (2012 ICC) or the proposed 2018 updated codes for permit submittals made prior to December 31, 2018.

The current building, construction and fire regulations are amended editions of the 2012 (ICC) International Code Council, 2011 (NEC) National Electric Code, 2009 ICC/ANSI Accessible Usable Buildings and Facilities and ASME A17.1 Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators. The ICC publishes revised editions on a three-year cycle incorporating recommendations from architects, engineers, builders and contractor’s associations and other stakeholders.
