(Motion Required) <br />BACKGROUND <br />On January 15, 2010, the State of California Building Standards Commission adopted eleven <br />(11) new Parts to the California Code of Regulations (CCR) commonly known as Title 24 and <br />also referred to as the 2010 California Building Standards Codes. Local jurisdictions are <br />required to enforce these new codes as written by January 1, 2011 or adopt a local Ordinance that <br />enacts these Codes with local or regional amendments based on climatic, geological and <br />topographical conditions and findings. The Town must now take action to incorporate this new <br />set of Codes as amended into the Town Municipal Code. The Town in cooperation with Code <br />Officials around the region has developed local amendments to the California Codes that are <br />uniform across multiple jurisdictions throughout the Santa Clara Valley, Peninsula, East Bay, <br />and Monterey Bay regions in order to enhance regional consistency. <br />PREPARED BY I<, Wendie R.
