Why Are Building Codes On this Web Site


Go to Cole Repair home page
Go to Cook County Index


ATTENTION:
The portions of the code on this web site only pertain to multi-family apartment buildings in order to assist building owners in unincorporated Cook County to comply with the ordinances affecting apartment buildings.   All other Ordinances are not displayed at this site.     This is being done because the person in  the Building and Zoning Department at 312-603-0500 answered each question I had with "I don't know" including where I could locate a copy of the Ordinances.   He even questioned why I would want to read a copy of the Ordinances.   I  believe that owners of apartment buildings need to know the Ordinances that affect apartment buildings and the information was not readily available.   This is not an official Cook County approved web site.

 
PLEASE CALL BUILDING AND ZONING AT 312-603-0500 TO VERIFY EACH ORDINANCE (USING THE ORDINANCE NUMBER) WHICH AFFECTS YOUR PARTICULAR CIRCUMSTANCE TO ENSURE YOUR REPAIRS OF YOUR BUILDING ARE DONE IN COMPLIANCE.  

DO NOT ALLOW BUILDING AND ZONING PERSONNEL  TO TELL YOU TO CALL THE PUBLISHER - INDEX PUBLISHING CORPORATION - FOR VERIFICATION OF ANY INFORMATION AS THEY HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO DO IN THE PAST.   ONLY THE BUILDING AND ZONING ARE ALLOWED TO GIVE ADVICE AND VERIFY ACCURACY.



The following information for Administrative and Introductory Articles has been reproduced for Apartment Owners.  All other building types have been omitted.  Those owners must refer to the complete Ordinance for their particular building type.

NOTE:  Owners of A2 classified buildings (apartment buildings) must adhere to applicable sections of Article VI - Classification of Buildings and ALL of   ARTICLES   XIX through XXXX (as do owners of all types of buildings).


For the complete ordinances of all types of buildings - you can purchase the book of ordinances at::
