Overland Park reviews all commercial and residential construction plans and documents that require a building permit.
Overland Park uses the 2018 International Building Codes package when reviewing building plans for commercial and residential projects.
The package includes:
Code books are available for viewing at the building safety counter on the second floor of City Hall.
If you would like to appeal a building, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, or fire code requirement, submit an application to the city.
Complete an appeals application along with substantiating documents, including plans, correspondence, photographs, and any other relevant information or documents. A $250 check, made out to the City of Overland Park, also is required.
A Code Board of Appeals meeting will be scheduled within 10 days of receiving the application. At the meeting, the applicant will present his or her position and a variance or appeal will be granted or denied. The Code Board of Appeals must give at least three votes in the affirmative in order to grant a variance. The applicant will be notified of the results of the vote in writing.
