Building Codes

We need building codes – whether in our homes, offices, schools, stores or places of entertainment. We rely on the safety of structures that surround us in our everyday lives. The public need for protection from disaster due to fire, structural collapse, and general deterioration underscores the need for building codes and their administration.

The City of San Dimas enforces these uniform codes, as amended by Ordinance No. 1227:

  • 2016 California Building Code
  • 2016 California Residential Code
  • 2016 California Plumbing Code
  • 2016 California Electrical Code
  • 2016 California Mechanical Code
  • 2016 California Fire Code
  • 2016 California Green Building Standards Code

The San Dimas amendments to these codes, plus other building codes adopted, are found in our Municipal Code Title 15 available online at the following link:
