On June 18, 2019, Flagstaff City Council passed Resolution 2019-26 and Ordinance 2019-16 effectively amending Title 4 of the Flagstaff City Code - Building Regulations and adopting the following list of model building codes (referred to as the “2018 Suite of Codes”) along with amendments specific to the City of Flagstaff. These building codes, as amended, become effective on July 19, 2019. 

The Building Safety Program is offering a grace period through December 31, 2019, where submittals may be designed to either the 2012 or 2018 Suite of codes. Submittals must indicate on the construction plans under which codes the submittal is designed. Submittals designed to the 2018 Suite of Codes will not be accepted prior to July 19, 2019. 

On January 1, 2020 all submittals are required to be designed to the 2018 Suite of Codes as amended by the City of Flagstaff.
