The Arvada City Council will be discussing an ordinance to amend and update the City Building and Fire Code regulations. Periodically, the City updates these codes by adopting the most recent versions of the International Codes and National Electrical Code. These codes are widely adopted by jurisdictions around the country with the goal of providing the foundation and guidelines for creating a safe building environment. If the Ordinance is approved, the City will adopt the 2018 versions of these codes, with local amendments.
The Colorado Spring City Council will be considering a ballot proposal that would impose a 10 cent fee on all single-use plastic bags in retail stores. Restaurants are explicitly exempted from this proposal, but we are tracking this legislation to ensure that does not change. If the ordinance is approved, the proposal will be referred to the November 3 municipal ballot.
