Avon Building Code Amendments and Water Efficient Landscaping Ordinance Now in Effect

 


As construction season kicks off, the Town would like to provide a reminder of recently approved changes to the Building Code and Landscaping regulations. At the public hearing held on February 28, 2023, the Avon Town Council voted to adopt new landscaping regulations that aim to reduce wildfire risk and increase water efficiency. A copy of the new codes can be found at Avon.org on the Community Development/Planning page
. 

Additionally, at the public hearing held on April 25, 2023, the Avon Town Council voted to adopt new codes related to energy efficiency, electric vehicle readiness, solar readiness, and electric ready/electric preferred that will go above and beyond what is currently required in the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). A copy of the new codes can be found at  Avon.org on the Community Development/Building page. 

Both of these changes are officially in effect now that the 30-day posting period has passed, and will be incorporated into our online Municipal Code shortly. 

For any questions, please give us a call - our office can be reached at (970) 748-4012.
