The City of Lee’s Summit Adopts New Building Code

The Lee’s Summit City Council adopted the 2012 International Building Code with amendments at its meeting on October 3, 2013. The 2012 Energy Conservation Code was not proposed for consideration at the meeting. The effective date for the 2012 Codes is January 1, 2014. Any permit application submitted after this effective date will be reviewed and inspected under the 2012 Code and adopted amendments. Several HBA members were part of a working group with city staff to provide feedback on the new code. City staff is planning to coordinate a meeting in the near future with all Lee’s Summit builders to review the new Code and answer any questions regarding implementation.
