The 2009 International Code series is expected to be available by March, 2009 and ILLOWA a Chapter of ICC is working on uniform code adoption for the Quad City metropolitan area and surrounding Counties, Towns and Cities. As a committee we met at Palmer Hills Golf Course ExternalLink.gif on February 26th, 2009. At this meeting we established an ongoing open dialogue about fee schedules, how permit fees are calculated, codes to be adopted, training and initial thoughts on amendments. Each jurisdiction provided information to review pocesses and fees throughout our area.

Starting July 8th, 2009 we will meet every Wednesday at the Rock Island County Office Building ExternalLink.gif from 9AM to Noon until amendments are completed. We will post all propsed amendments on this page so you can follow the progress. We have also found it necessary to create supplemental handouts for residents and contractors.As the codes have become more complex every year a comprehensive set of informational handouts will help clear up confusion on typical code topics and help keep uniform interpretation from town to town.  

Participation in these meetings is important and will help ensure uniform code adoption for all Towns, Cities, and Counties on both sides of the river. If you would like to get involved in the process send us an E-mail Click to send e-mail, we welcome all suggestions.
