Building Codes and Amendments


On October 7, 2013 the Lee’s Summit City Council adopted new building code regulations (Ordinance #7369) and a new fire code (Ordinance #7370). These ordinances adopt provisions from the following nationally published construction codes: 

  • 2012 International Building Code
  • 2012 International Plumbing Code
  • 2012 International Mechanical Code
  • 2012 International Fuel Gas Code
  • 2012 International Residential Code
  • 2012 International Fire Code
  • 2011 National Electrical Code.

Any permit applications for projects received on or after January 1, 2014 shall be designed and constructed according to the newly adopted 2012 codes.

These codes can be purchased on-line at the ICC Store, or by calling the International Code Council Store at 1-800-786-4452.

Contact the Planning & Codes Administration Department for any questions related to the building related regulations at 969-1200 or the Fire Department at 969-1300 with any International Fire Code questions.
