[ARCHIVED] International Building Code Extended by State

The Washington State Building Code Council (SBCC) has voted to approve the extension of the 2018 International Building Code and other accessory and fire code adoption from February 1, 2021 to July 1, 2021.  


The city will continue to implement the 2015 International Codes as adopted in Mountlake Terrace Municipal Code (MTMC) Chapter 15.05 until changes to the codes are adopted by the SBCC.


“Due to the permitting and economic challenges associated with COVID-19, the city welcomes the extension of implementation of the updated building codes,” stated Community and Economic Development Director Christy Osborn.
