Building Safety Month

May is Building Safety Month.

To many it may seem that obtaining a building permit is a hindrance to what you may want to do on your property.  The truth is that they are not, and the execution of building permits keeps us all safe!  Standards developed through building regulations are evident in every building we visit, but are seldom noticed by the general public and that’s because they are working!  During Building Safety Month, our aim is to promote what Building Officials and Building Services do for the communities in which we live and work.

Please join us for these events in May:
