CALBO 2019 Innovative Practices Survey

To better serve the changing needs of CALBO members, the CALBO Innovative Practices Committee (IPC) each summer designs and conducts a member survey on issues relevant to the identification, adoption and implementation of technologies and practices which aid building departments in their administration and enforcement of building codes and standards within the state.

This year’s survey builds upon input received from previous surveys and needs expressed by CALBO members throughout the year, including the IPC’s presentation at the March, 2019 CALBO ABM in San Diego.

This year, we are surveying on three issues:

  • The relative costs by jurisdiction size of information technology services.
  • Actions relevant to going “paperless” in code administration and enforcement programs.
  • Use of drones by building departments.

We appreciate you taking the time to complete this survey by September 15, 2019. Survey results will be compiled by the IPC and shared with respondents. In addition, an article summarizing the survey results will appear in CALBO News – Fall 2019 Edition.

Thank you in advance for your time!

CALBO and ICC Host Discussion of Federal and State Leaders on Seismic Resiliency and Functional Recovery

SACRAMENTO: Months of planning and collaboration came together on Thursday, July 25, 2019 as the International Code Council (ICC) and California Building Officials (CALBO) hosted the Seismic Roundtable. Governmental leaders, code officials and industry professionals were all invited to meet and exchange ideas at the California State Capitol as part of the event.  

Since early 2019, ICC and CALBO have been working towards providing this forum facilitating the conversation relative to seismic resiliency and functional recovery. Following a tumultuous year of seismic resiliency legislation in 2018, both organizations realized the need to bring stakeholders together in a positive, productive and informed manner.  

The stated goal for the day was to determine a nationally applicable approach to seismic functional recovery for new construction. To do so, a highly diverse group of governmental and industry experts presented applicable findings in the morning, which was immediately followed by a professionally facilitated roundtable. The timing of the event was clearly underscored by the recent earthquakes in Ridgecrest and the Searles Valley.
