Albemarle to meet about Commercial Maintenance Code

Published 3:12 pm Tuesday, September 10, 2019

The City of Albemarle will conduct a public input and information session at 6 p.m. Sept. 17 in the Ray Allen Community Room at City Hall regarding a proposed Commercial Maintenance Code.  If adopted, the code would establish minimum structural standards and requirements for commercial buildings. Depending on what happens at the meeting, the code could also potentially address aesthetic issues.

The purpose of the meeting, according to the city, “is to educate the public on what such a code is and is not, and to address questions the public may have.”

If some level of standards are adopted, compliance would become a requirement and a Commercial Maintenance Code would also establish procedures for addressing non-compliance. The city plans to work with building owners to develop plans and timelines for improvements if any action is required.
