It takes everyone in a community to keep our homes, schools, offices, stores and other buildings safe for public use. Your safe construction practices help protect you, your family, your friends and your investment. Be sure to get your local code official involved with your project, because the Planning and Building Services Department is an important ally, from start to finish.
