The Deconstruction Ordinance went into effect on January 1, 2018 and covers structures built in 1929 or earlier, designated historic structures, and structures in historic districts. The requirements state that those structures must be deconstructed rather than demolished to maximize salvage able building materials and to help reduce the amount of waste in landfills. Reducing the demolition waste from these older structures that would otherwise go to landfills can save taxpayers from paying higher landfill tipping fees.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Enforcement of the deconstruction of one- to 4-unit residential structures will be stayed until March 1, 2020. For more information, please view substitute resolution File #181331 and File #181332 relating to property deconstruction.
