Council would like your feedback

During a recent work session with the City Council, the Council expressed their desire to amend our current residential building standards by:

1. Requiring all residential homes to be 100% masonry. Our current standard is 100% masonry only on the front side and 80% on the remaining sides.

2. A minimum roof pitch on the main roof structure of 8:12. We currently
don’t have a minimum roof pitch requirement.

3. Require gutters on all sides. This is not required at this time.

4. Require a minimum 30-year roof shingle. This is also not required at this time.

Please express your thoughts to our council. They are here to serve you.
