Planning and Development Services (PDSD) will have a significant number of building plan reviewers and inspectors attending the Arizona Building Officials (AZBO) 2018 Fall Educational Institute, from Monday, Oct. 29, through Friday, Nov. 2. This will result in a closed Commercial Plan Review Counter on Monday, Oct. 29, and Tuesday, Oct. 30. There also will be limited PDSD staff for building inspections during that week.
The purpose behind building codes is to ensure that buildings are safe from structure failure, fire hazards, electrical and heating systems, electrical shock, and health risks. The AZBO classes ensure City staff is trained to recognize such risks.
