compliance program
Compliance Program

Our Mission:

The purpose of the Compliance Program is to investigate and respond to public inquiries of complaints regarding violations of Lane County’s land use, building, and nuisance codes, to promote voluntary compliance with the codes, and when necessary, to take enforcement action to obtain correction of code violations.

Lane County Building and Subsurface Sanitation Programs

How these LMD programs ensure the safety and health of Lane County residents.

Lane County Building and Subsurface Sanitation Programs

Our Mission:

To protect public safety, health and welfare wherever hazards associated with the design, erection, repair, removal, demolition or occupancy of structures have the potential to exist within the county's jurisdiction.  We endeavor to fulfill this mission through the efficient, professional, and equitable administration of nationally recognized code standards and local regulations.

Lane County Building and Subsurface Sanitation Programs

How do we accomplish this mission?

  • Providing informational resources to owners and contractors
  • Reviewing proposed construction plans and providing input with regard to applicable code standards and engineering requirements
  • Inspecting projects in the field to ensure they are built in accordance with approved plans and applicable code standards
  • Generally, through “The Permit Process”

Why do I need a permit? What can I do without one?

  • The permit process was developed with several objectives in mind, first and foremost is occupant safety (homeowners, the public, etc.).
  • Rather than simply acting as the authority granting permission to build, the building and sanitation programs aim to act as a consultant on your project, adding value and piece of mind by ensuring current standards in construction are achieved.
  • Not just “Can” or “Can’t”, but advising on best practices.
  • There are several exemptions from permits for small projects, repairs, finish work, etc.

What are “The Rules”? Who administers them?

  • “The Rules” can be found in state statute, state administrative rule, and county code.
  • These laws and ordinances reference a collection of standards commonly referred to as “The Code” or “The Building Code”.
  • “The Building Code” is a collections of standards organized by discipline (structural, plumbing, electrical, etc.)
  • The code contains prescriptive standards and performance based standards.
  • These standards are administered by LMD through its staff of plans examiners, inspectors, engineers and environmental health specialists. These technical professionals are educated and certified through the state in the many different building disciplines they are charged with administering.
  • Continuing education of staff is critical to staying informed and accurate in an evolving industry.

General Customer Service

  • Both the Sanitation and Building Programs have technical staff available at LMD’s front counter.
  • Staff responds to a wide range of requests and questions. This service is regularly utilized by property owners, contractors, realtors, etc.
  • This service is free and available to the public regardless of whether they have an active permit.

Plan Review and Consultation

  • When applying for a permit, construction documents are often required.
  • LMD staff will review these documents for conformance to code standards
  • Issues identified through this process are addressed prior to permit issuance.

Inspection Services

  • An issued permit will list a number of specific inspections that must be approved during the course of construction.
  • Depending on the complexity of the project, there may be anywhere from a single inspection to dozens that must be approved.
  • Approval of all inspections results in final approval of the permit. This approval allows the owner to operate the system(s) and/or occupy the structure(s) permitted.

Objectives

  • Implement technological improvements that allow for more services over the internet, more efficiency in the office.
  • Continue to ensure fees collected address the cost of providing associated service(s), minimize the cost of these services.
  • Continue to achieve goals and raise marks in terms of established performance measures

Challenges

  • Reduced revenue and down-sized staff due to current state of construction industry.
  • Vast geographical area to service with field inspections.
  • Limited number of qualified technical professionals to perform mandated duties.
  • Additional “unfunded mandates” that local Building and Sanitation departments are tasked with through State legislation (surcharge collection, energy efficiency enforcement, etc.)
