To prevent the spread of coronavirus in our community, Johnson County Government has ordered residents to stay at home except for essential needs, beginning Tuesday, March 24 for 30 days.
Overland Park reviews all commercial and residential construction plans and documents that require a building permit.
Overland Park uses the 2012 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.
