Code

AB 2181 (Bloom)

Building standards: seismic retrofit.

2014

Description:

Would authorize each city, city and county, or county to require that owners evaluate the earthquake hazard of soft story residential buildings and older concrete residential buildings, and would include concrete residential buildings that were constructed prior to the adoption of local building codes that ensure ductility, as specified, as potentially hazardous if an earthquake occurs. The bill would authorize a city, city and county, or county to employ seismic evaluation of older concrete residential buildings to address individual seismically hazardous buildings without regard to how the buildings came to the attention of its officials.
