Attention Building and Development Community
The City of Siloam Springs Board of Directors adopted the 2012 Arkansas Fire Protection Code (AFPC) Tuesday, May 20, placing the ordinance on its first, second and third readings. The AFPC is the minimum standard with which buildings and properties are to be constructed. The local adoption of this code provides the ability for Siloam Springs to locally address the life safety needs of its citizens in a more timely and efficient manner.
Informal educational sessions for the members of the building community and the general public will be held Thursday, May 29, 2014 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. and then again on Thursday, June 5, 2014 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. at the Siloam Springs City Administration Building Board Room. Members of the Building and Fire Department will be present to provide overview of the code transition as well as answer topic specific questions as needed.
During these information sessions members will also be available to speak to the additional items that are mandated by the State which are also present within the AFPC. Such items that are being considered are the Mechanical and Energy Code with anticipation of full local application sometime around fall of this year.
For those that cannot attend one of the scheduled educational sessions the Siloam Springs Building Official Randal Clark can be reached at 479-524-5136 and the Siloam Springs Fire Marshal can be reached at 479-524-3103 for any questions that might arise.
