Vacant Building Information
The city has studied the impact of vacant buildings and found that they can discourage economic development, become an attractive nuisance for children, a harbor for rodents and other vermin, be an invitation to vagrants and criminals, become more vulnerable to arson, and have an adverse affect on the property values of businesses and residences in the surrounding area.

To minimize the impact of vacant structures the city enacted Ordinance 3170 that requires vacant buildings be registered with the city and annual inspections be conducted.

Code Requirements

The city operates under the following Building Codes:
  • 2012 IBC; IRC; IPC; IMC; IFC, IECC; IFGC - 2002 NEC.
