Building Codes

The Village of Glen Ellyn has adopted many of the International Code Council (ICC) Codes, State of Illinois codes, as well as codes and standards developed by other national organizations. The Village has adopted local amendments to these codes to meet the Village’s specific needs.

These codes are adopted to protect the health, safety and welfare of the public and building occupants by establishing the minimum standards to which building structures and their fire protection, mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems must be constructed and maintained.

Copies of the adopted codes are available for reference in the Community Development Department and may be purchased directly from the publishing organizations.
