What is the Building Division?

The Building Division handles permit applications, inspections, and code enforcement. The Town recently adopted the 2018 ICC Building Codes and 2017 National Electric Code (NEC) for plan review and inspections. The Building Division also uses the 2012 International Property Maintenance Code (IPMC). These documents are available to review at the Community Development Department, 890 Main Street, Clarkdale, AZ 86324.
