Since its incorporation in 1960, the unprecedented growth of San Dimas has transformed the City from an essentially rural area to a well-balanced community offering industrial, commercial, and residential living. In addition to the 1,700 acre Frank G. Bonelli Recreational Area which lies within the City boundaries, there are many parks such as San Dimas Canyon Park, a city-owned golf course (San Dimas Canyon Golf Club), and over 27 miles of equestrian trails for riding. The city services include an extensive recreational program for youth and for senior citizens, and the City boasts a new modern City Hall, with excellent provisions made for County Sheriff and Fire Departments, along with a fine Los Angeles County Library and Engineering Regional Office.
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. 1275:
- 2019 California Building Code
- 2019 California Residential Code
- 2019 California Plumbing Code
- 2019 California Electrical Code
- 2019 California Mechanical Code
- 2019 California Fire Code
- 2019 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:San Dimas Municipal Code
