2015 Fire Code Adoption
To whom it may concern,
I am writing in support of the Board of Housing and Community Development decision to adopt the 2015 Virginia Statewide Fire Prevention Code as initially approved. I also want to commend the great work provided by the Department of Housing and Community Development staff and all of the stakeholders and code officials who invested their time.
The meetings were attended by Building Officials, Fire Officials and affected stakeholders to review and comment on the proposed code changes. Many opportunities were provided to address any concerns, including time extensions and additional meetings. An incredible effort was invested in this code. It was an open and transparent process; therefore, I respectfully urge the Board to adopt the 2015 Virginia Statewide Fire Prevention Code as initially approved.
