Building/Electric Code Review Update & Training

July 2020 - The Village of Oak Park’s Building Codes Advisory Commission has reviewed the Village’s current building and electric codes, decreased the amendments and has proposed that the Village Board consider adopting updated 2018 International Codes. 

The codes include the 2018 editions of the International Building Code, International Residential Code, International Fire Code, International Existing Building Code, International Fuel Gas Code, International Mechanical Code and the 2017 edition of the National Electric Code.

The Village’s Development Customer Services Department has worked with engineering consultant HR Green to make available informative training videos regarding the building and electric code changes that are being proposed. Click the links below to access the training videos:

The Village Board is expected to consider the proposed updated 2018 International Codes in late summer 2020.
