Town Building Safety Dept. to continue code discussion
Dealing with IRC at Monday meeting

Bill Helm

CAMP VERDE - The Town of Camp Verde's Building Safety Department will host another public meeting that focuses on the potential adoption of the 2012 International Building Codes.

The October 21 meeting will address the International Residential Code (IRC), one of 11 building codes.

The Building Safety Department encourages architects, builders, contractors and designers and residents of Camp Verde and the surrounding areas to attend.

"We are pleased with the participation and feedback up to this point," said Robert Foreman, Building Official and Town Safety Officer for Camp Verde. "We've had a number of folks already submit comments and suggestions to us - which is exactly what we are looking for."

According to Foreman, building codes make buildings safer, more efficient, more durable, and leave the door open for new technologies, research and design.

The purpose of the IRC is to provide minimum requirements to safeguard the public safety, health and general welfare through affordability, structural strength, means of egress facilities, stability, sanitation, light and ventilation, energy conservation and safety to life and property from fire and other hazards attributed to the build environment, according to the administrative section of the 2006 International Building Codes.

New fire sprinkler system requirements for residential houses were covered at the Oct. 14 meeting. The Oct. 21 meeting will continue the focus on technical amendments already proposed by staff, as well as the amendments already proposed by Yavapai County, Foreman said.

"Everyone in attendance seemed to agree with staff's recommendation that anything less than 5,000 square feet should not require a sprinkler system [to be] installed," Foreman said. "Of course, if the homeowner wants to put one in, that is perfectly fine."

Monday's building code meeting will be held at 4 p.m. in Town Council chambers, 473 S Main St. #106. The meeting is open to the public.
