For Meeting of: February 2, 2021 ITEM TITLE: Ordinance adopting Chapter 11.40 2018 International Property Maintenance Code; repealing Yakima Municipal Code (YMC) Chapters 11.07; 11.10; 11.13; 11.20; 11.46; 11.48; 11.56 SUBMITTED BY: Joan Davenport, Community Development Director Glenn Denman, Code Administration Manager(509) 575-6268 SUMMARY EXPLANATION: Adoption of the International Property Maintenance Code (I PMC) and subsequent repealing of current Yakima Municipal Code (YMC) property maintenance codes (chapters 11.07 1985 Uniform Building Conservation Code; 11.10 Neighborhood Conservation; 11.13 Apartment House and Hotel Safety Code; 11.20 1991 Uniform Housing Code; 11.46 1991 Uniform Code for the Abatement of Dangerous Buildings; 11.48 Minimum Standards for Vacant Buildings; 11.56 Building Security)will effectively consolidate current property maintenance codes into one code, providing excellent customer service through consistency and simplification. The I PMC is a commonly utilized code in many cities across Washington State, including Union Gap, Selah and Yakima County, and it provides a robust set of standards applicable to Yakima's Clean City Program. Stakeholders NW Justice (a tenant advocacy group), Central Washington Homebuilder's Association, and the Yakima Landlord's Association have been contacted inviting their input. The Landlord's Association requested a copy of the ordinance and code, and through dialogue, their original concern (regarding the penalty structure)was satisfied. Otherwise, we have received no other concerns from those groups to date. City staff has sent out a press release on 1/21/21 directing the public to the adopting documents found in the Code Administration Division web page with an opportunity to comment (https://www.yakimawa.gov/services/codes/). Comments received will be shared with Council. Previous Council committees and Council meetings reviewing this code go back to November of 2018. In the 11/12/19 Council meeting, it was requested by Council to bring a draft ordinance of the I PMC.An ordinance was presented at a September 2020 Council meeting, but it was postponed with the idea of providing opportunity for public comment. In the 1/19/21 Council meeting, discussion came up about junk vehicles, inoperable vehicles and improperly parked vehicles. The I PMC addresses vehicles parked on private property, and not on the public right of way, as is the case with our current property maintenance codes. Our current codes are "property maintenance" codes. The intent behind adopting the I PMC is to maintain the status quo, but with 2 simplified processes.

The I-Codes, including this International Property Maintenance Code, are used in a variety of ways in both the public and private sectors. Most industry professionals are familiar with the I-Codes as the basis of laws and regulations in communities across the U.S. and in other countries. However, the impact of the codes extends well beyond the regulatory arena, as they are used in a variety of nonregulatory settings, including: • Voluntary compliance programs such as those promoting sustainability, energy efficiency and disaster resistance. • The insurance industry,to estimate and manage risk,and as a tool in underwriting and rate decisions. • Certification and credentialing of individuals involved in the fields of building design, con- struction and safety. • Certification of building and construction-related products. • U.S.federal agencies,to guide construction in an array of government-owned properties. • Facilities management. • "Best practices"benchmarks for designers and builders, including those who are engaged in projects in jurisdictions that do not have a formal regulatory system or a governmental enforcement mechanism. • College, university and professional school textbooks and curricula. • Reference works related to building design and construction. In addition to the codes themselves,the code development process brings together building pro- fessionals on a regular basis. It provides an international forum for discussion and deliberation about building design, construction methods, safety, performance requirements, technological advances and innovative products. Development This 2018 edition presents the code as originally issued,with changes reflected in the 2003 through 2015 editions and further changes developed through the ICC Code Development Process through 2016.A new edition of the code is promulgated every 3 years. This code is intended to establish provisions that adequately protect public health, safety and welfare; that do not unnecessarily increase construction costs; that do not restrict the use of new materials, products or methods of construction; and that do not give preferential treatment to par- ticular types or classes of materials, products or methods of construction. 2018 INTERNATIONAL PROPERTY MAINTENANCE CODE® Hi INTERNATIONAL �{i ��yyy{ � tt �CODE COUNCIL Copyright CUP.;ICC ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.Awned by Glenn Denman(Glum.Dmmanpyalamawa goy).(City of Yakima Fue Dept)Order Number#loosaooae on Sep os.amo 1007 AM(PDT)pursuant to F44 ,flP4/55 iN{ �U 4 Imense Agreement with ICC No father reproduction no further reproductions by any third party or elvtributi®authoevsd.Single user only copying and networking prohibited ANY UNAUTHORIZED REPRODUCTION ORDIS RIBVTION ISA VIOLATION OF THE FEDERAL COPYRIGHT ACT AND THE LICENSE AGREEMENT AND SUBJECT TO CIVIL AND CRIMINAL PENALTIES THEREUNDER .94.48 25 Maintenance The International Property Maintenance Code is kept up to date through the review of proposed changes submitted by code enforcement officials, industry representatives, design professionals and other interested parties. Proposed changes are carefully considered through an open code development process in which all interested and affected parties may participate. The ICC Code Development Process reflects principles of openness, transparency, balance, due process and consensus,the principles embodied in OMB Circular A-119, which governs the federal government's use of private-sector standards.The ICC process is open to anyone;there is no cost to participate, and people can participate without travel cost through the ICC's cloud-based app, cdp- Access®. A broad cross section of interests are represented in the ICC Code Development Process. The codes, which are updated regularly, include safeguards that allow for emergency action when required for health and safety reasons. In order to ensure that organizations with a direct and material interest in the codes have a voice in the process, the ICC has developed partnerships with key industry segments that support the ICC's important public safety mission. Some code development committee members were nomi- nated by the following industry partners and approved by the ICC Board: • American Institute of Architects (AIA) • National Association of Home Builders(NAHB) The code development committees evaluate and make recommendations regarding proposed changes to the codes.Their recommendations are then subject to public comment and council-wide votes. The ICC's governmental members—public safety officials who have no financial or business interest in the outcome—cast the final votes on proposed changes. The contents of this work are subject to change through the code development cycles and by any governmental entity that enacts the code into law. For more information regarding the code devel- opment process, contact the Codes and Standards Development Department of the International Code Council. While the I-Code development procedure is thorough and comprehensive,the ICC, its members and those participating in the development of the codes disclaim any liability resulting from the publication or use of the I-Codes, or from compliance or noncompliance with their provisions.The ICC does not have the power or authority to police or enforce compliance with the contents of this code. Code Development Committee Responsibilities (Letter Designations in Front of Section Numbers) In each code development cycle, proposed changes to this code are considered at the Committee Action Hearings by the International Property Maintenance Code Development Committee, whose action constitutes a recommendation to the voting membership for final action on the proposed changes. Proposed changes to a code section having a number beginning with a letter in brackets are considered by a different code development committee. For example, proposed changes to code sections that have the letter[F] in front of them (e.g., [F] 704.1)are considered by the Interna- tional Fire Code Development Committee at the Committee Action Hearings. The content of sections in this code that begin with a letter designation is maintained by another code development committee in accordance with the following: [A] = Administrative Code Development Committee; [F] = International Fire Code Development Committee; [P] = International Plumbing Code Development Committee; [BE] = IBC—Egress Code Development Committee; and [BG]= IBC—General Code Development Committee. iv 2018 INTERNATIONAL PROPERTY MAINTENANCE CODE® INTERNATIONAL �{, ��yyy{ � tt �CODE COUNCIL Copyright CUP.;ICC ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.Awned by Glenn Denman(Glum.Dmmanpyalamawa goy).(City of Yakima Fre Dept)Order Number#loosaooae on Sep os.amo 1007 AM(PDT)pursuant to F44 ,flP4/55 'N{ �U 4 Imense Agreement with ICC No father reproduction no further reproductions by any third party or elvtributi®mLhoevsd.Single user only copying and networking prohibited ANY UNAUTHORIZED REPRODUCTION ORDIS RIBVTION ISA VIOLATION OF THE FEDERAL COPYRIGHT ACT AND THE LICENSE AGREEMENT AND SUBJECT TO CIVIL AND CRIMINAL PENALTIES THEREUNDER 100940048 26 For the development of the 2021 edition of the I-Codes,there will be two groups of code devel- opment committees and they will meet in separate years.

Code change proposals submitted for code sections that have a letter designation in front of them will be heard by the respective committee responsible for such code sections. Because differ- ent committees hold Committee Action Hearings in different years, proposals for the IPMC will be heard by committees in both the 2018 (Group A)and the 2019 (Group B)code development cycles. For instance, every section of Chapter 1 of this code is designated as the responsibility of the Administrative Code Development Committee,which is part of the Group B portion of the hearings. This committee will hold its Committee Action Hearings in 2019 to consider code change proposals for Chapter 1 of all I-Codes except the International Energy Conservation Code, International Resi- dential Code and International Green Construction Code. Therefore, any proposals received for Chapter 1 of this code will be assigned to the Administrative Code Development Committee for con- sideration in 2019. It is very important that anyone submitting code change proposals understand which code devel- opment committee is responsible for the section of the code that is the subject of the code change proposal.

Deletion indicators in the form of an arrow (a)are provided in the margin where an entire section, paragraph,exception or table has been deleted or an item in a list of items or a table has been deleted. Coordination of the International Codes The coordination of technical provisions is one of the strengths of the ICC family of model codes. The codes can be used as a complete set of complementary documents, which will provide users with full integration and coordination of technical provisions. Individual codes can also be used in subsets or as stand-alone documents.To make sure that each individual code is as complete as pos- sible, some technical provisions that are relevant to more than one subject area are duplicated in some of the model codes.This allows users maximum flexibility in their application of the I-Codes. Italicized Terms Words and terms defined in Chapter 2, Definitions,are italicized where they appear in code text and the Chapter 2 definition applies. Where such words and terms are not italicized, common-use defi- nitions apply.The words and terms selected have code-specific definitions that the user should read carefully to facilitate better understanding of the code. Adoption The International Code Council maintains a copyright in all of its codes and standards. Maintaining copyright allows the ICC to fund its mission through sales of books, in both print and electronic for- mats.The ICC welcomes adoption of its codes by jurisdictions that recognize and acknowledge the ICC's copyright in the code,and further acknowledge the substantial shared value of the public/pri- vate partnership for code development between jurisdictions and the ICC. The ICC also recognizes the need for jurisdictions to make laws available to the public. All (- Codes and I-Standards, along with the laws of many jurisdictions, are available for free in a nondownloadable form on the ICC's website. Jurisdictions should contact the ICC at adop- tions@iccsafe.org to learn how to adopt and distribute laws based on the International Prop- erty Maintenance Code in a manner that provides necessary access, while maintaining the ICC's copyright. To facilitate adoption, several sections of this code contain blanks for fill-in information that needs to be supplied by the adopting jurisdiction as part of the adoption legislation.

The IPMC is a maintenance document intended to establish minimum maintenance standards for basic equipment, light,ventilation, heating, sanitation and fire safety. Responsibility is fixed among owners, operators and occupants for code compliance. The IPMC provides for the regulation and safe use of existing structures in the interest of the social and economic welfare of the community. Arrangement and Format of the 2018 IPMC Before applying the requirements of the IPMC it is beneficial to understand its arrangement and for- mat. The IPMC, like other codes published by ICC, is arranged and organized to follow sequential steps that generally occur during an inspection.The IPMC is divided into eight different parts: Chapters Subjects 1 Scope and Administration 2 Definitions 3 General Requirements 4 Light, Ventilation and Occupancy Limitations 5 Plumbing Facilities and Fixture Requirements 6 Mechanical and Electrical Requirements 7 Fire Safety Requirements 8 Referenced Standards The following is a chapter-by-chapter synopsis of the scope and intent of the provisions of the Inter- national Property Maintenance Code: Chapter 1 Scope and Administration. This chapter contains provisions for the application, enforcement and administration of subsequent requirements of the code. In addition to establish- ing the scope of the code, Chapter 1 identifies which buildings and structures come under its pur- view. Chapter 1 is largely concerned with maintaining "due process of law" in enforcing the property maintenance criteria contained in the body of the code. Only through careful observation of the administrative provisions can the building official reasonably expect to demonstrate that "equal protection under the law" has been provided. Chapter 2 Definitions. All terms that are defined in the code are listed alphabetically in Chapter 2.While a defined term may be used in one chapter or another,the meaning provided in Chapter 2 is applicable throughout the code. Where understanding of a term's definition is especially key to or necessary for understanding of a particular code provision,the term is shown in italics.This is true only for those terms that have a meaning that is unique to the code. In other words,the generally understood meaning of a term or phrase might not be sufficient or consistent with the meaning prescribed by the code; therefore, it is essential that the code-defined meaning be known. Guidance is provided regarding tense,gender and plurality of defined terms as well as terms not defined in this code. 2018 INTERNATIONAL PROPERTY MAINTENANCE CODE® vii INTERNATIONAL /yyy O�} /y��i Copyright CUP.;ICC ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.Awned by Glenn Denman(Glum.Dmmanpyalamawa goy).(City of Yakima Fre Dept)Order Number#loosaooae on Sep os.amo 1007 AM(PDT)pursuant to CODE COUNCIL Imense Agreement with ICC No father reproduction no further reproductions by any third party or elvtributi®mLhoevsd.Single user only copying and networking prohibited ANY UNAUTHORIZED REPRODUCTION ORDIS RIBVTION ISA VIOLATION OF THE FEDERAL COPYRIGHT ACT AND THE LICENSE AGREEMENT AND SUBJECT TO CIVIL AND CRIMINAL PENALTIES THEREUNDER 29 Chapter 3 General Requirements. Chapter 3, "General Requirements," is broad in scope. It includes a variety of requirements for the exterior property areas as well as the interior and exterior elements of the structure.This chapter provides requirements that are intended to maintain a min- imum level of safety and sanitation for both the general public and the occupants of a structure,and to maintain a building's structural and weather-resistance performance.Chapter 3 provides specific criteria for regulating the installation and maintenance of specific building components; mainte- nance requirements for vacant structures and land; requirements regulating the safety, sanitation and appearance of the interior and exterior of structures and all exterior property areas; accessory structures; vehicle storage regulations and establishes who is responsible for complying with the chapter's provisions.This chapter also contains the requirements for swimming pools,spas and hot tubs and the requirements for protective barriers and gates in these barriers.Chapter 3 establishes the responsible parties for exterminating insects and rodents, and maintaining sanitary conditions in all types of occupancies. Chapter 4 Light,Ventilation and Occupancy Limitations.The purposes of Chapter 4 are to set forth these requirements in the code and to establish the minimum environment for occupiable and habitable buildings, by establishing the minimum criteria for light and ventilation and identify- ing occupancy limitations including minimum room width and area, minimum ceiling height and restrictions to prevent overcrowding. This chapter also provides for alternative arrangements of windows and other devices to comply with the requirements for light and ventilation and prohibits certain room arrangements and occupancy uses. Chapter 5 Plumbing Facilities and Fixture Requirements. Chapter 5 establishes the mini- mum criteria for the installation, maintenance and location of plumbing systems and facilities, including the water supply system, water heating appliances, sewage disposal system and related plumbing fixtures. Sanitary and clean conditions in occupied buildings are dependent upon certain basic plumbing principles, including providing potable water to a building, providing the basic fixtures to effectively utilize that water and properly removing waste from the building. Chapter 5 establishes the mini- mum criteria to verify that these principles are maintained throughout the life of a building. Chapter 6 Mechanical and Electrical Requirements.The purpose of Chapter 6 is to establish minimum performance requirements for heating, electrical and mechanical facilities and to estab- lish minimum standards for the safety of these facilities. This chapter establishes minimum criteria for the installation and maintenance of the following: heating and air-conditioning equipment, appliances and their supporting systems; water heating equipment, appliances and systems; cooking equipment and appliances; ventilation and exhaust equipment;gas and liquid fuel distribution piping and components;fireplaces and solid fuel-burning appliances; chimneys and vents; electrical services; lighting fixtures; electrical receptacle outlets; electrical distribution system equipment, devices and wiring; and elevators, escalators and dumb- waiters. Chapter 7 Fire Safety Requirements.The purpose of Chapter 7 is to address those fire hazards that arise as the result of a building's occupancy. It also provides minimum requirements for fire safety issues that are most likely to arise in older buildings. This chapter contains requirements for means of egress in existing buildings, including path of travel, required egress width, means of egress doors and emergency escape openings. Chapter 7 establishes the minimum requirements for fire safety facilities and fire protection sys- tems,as these are essential fire safety systems. viii 2018 INTERNATIONAL PROPERTY MAINTENANCE CODE® INTERNATIONAL �{i ��yyy{ � tt �CODE COUNCIL Copyright @ zoo,ICC.ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.Awned by Glenn Denman(Glum.Dmmanpyalamawa goy).(City of Yakima Fre Dept)Order Number#loosaooae on Sep os.amo 1007 AM(PDT)pursuant to F44 ,flP4/55 iN{ �U 4 Imense Agreement with ICC No father reproduction no further reproductions by any third party or elvtributi®mLhoevsd.Single user only copying and networking prohibited ANY UNAUTHORIZED REPRODUCTION ORDIS RIBVTION ISA VIOLATION OF THE FEDERAL COPYRIGHT ACT AND THE LICENSE AGREEMENT AND SUBJECT TO CIVIL AND CRIMINAL PENALTIES THEREUNDER 30 Chapter 8 Referenced Standards. The code contains numerous references to standards that are used to regulate materials and methods of construction. Chapter 8 contains a comprehensive list of all standards that are referenced in the code.The standards are part of the code to the extent of the reference to the standard.Compliance with the referenced standard is necessary for compli- ance with this code. By providing specifically adopted standards, the construction and installation requirements necessary for compliance with the code can be readily determined.The basis for code compliance is,therefore,established and available on an equal basis to the code official,contractor, designer and owner. Chapter 8 is organized in a manner that makes it easy to locate specific standards. It lists all of the referenced standards, alphabetically, by acronym of the promulgating agency of the standard. Each agency's standards are then listed in either alphabetical or numeric order based upon the stan- dard identification.The list also contains the title of the standard;the edition (date)of the standard referenced; any addenda included as part of the ICC adoption; and the section or sections of this code that reference the standard. 2018 INTERNATIONAL PROPERTY MAINTENANCE CODE® ix INTERNATIONAL �{i ��yyy{ � tt �CODE COUNCIL Copyright@@zoov ICC.ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.Awned by Glenn Denman(Glum.Dmmanpyalamawa goy).(City of Yakima Fre Dept)Order Number#loosaooae on Sep os.amo 1007 AM(PDT)pursuant to F44 ,flP4/55 iN{ �U 4 Imense Agreement with ICC No father reproduction no further reproductions by any third party or elvtributi®mLhoevsd.Single user only copying and networking prohibited ANY UNAUTHORIZED REPRODUCTION ORDIS RIBVTION ISA VIOLATION OF THE FEDERAL COPYRIGHT ACT AND THE LICENSE AGREEMENT AND SUBJECT TO CIVIL AND CRIMINAL PENALTIES THEREUNDER 31 x 2018 INTERNATIONAL PROPERTY MAINTENANCE CODE® INTERNATIONAL ��}COUNCIL Copyagbt@O2o17ICC.ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.Awned by Glenn Denman(Glenn Dmmavpyalamawagov).(City of Yakima Poe Dept)Order Numb¢EIoosaooae on Sep os.vmo 1007 AM(PDT)pursuant to CODE �U 4 Moen.Agreement with ICC No farther reproduction oo further reproductions by any Hurd party oo&oftibuti®authorized.Single user only copying and Mwodwgpaokbited ANY UNAUTHORIZED REPRODUCTION ORDISFIUBUTION ISA VIOLATION OF THE FEDERAL COPYRIGHT ACT AND THE LICENSE AGREEMENT.AND SUBJECT TO CIVIL AND CRIMINAL PENALTIES THEREUNDER 32 TABLE OF CONTENTS CHAPTER 1 SCOPE AND ADMINISTRATION .. . . 1 402 Light 17 403 Ventilation 17 PART 1—SCOPE AND APPLICATION 1 404 Occupancy Limitations 18 Section 101 General 1 CHAPTER 5 PLUMBING FACILITIES AND 102 Applicability 1 FIXTURE REQUIREMENTS 21 Section PART 2—ADMINISTRATION AND 501 General 21 ENFORCEMENT 2 502 Required Facilities 21 Section 503 Toilet Rooms 21 103 Department of Property Maintenance 504 Plumbing Systems and Fixtures 21 Inspection 2 104 Duties and Powers of the Code Official 2 505 Water System 22 105 Approval 3 506 Sanitary Drainage System 22 106 Violations 3 507 Storm Drainage 22 107 Notices and Orders 3 CHAPTER 6 MECHANICAL AND ELECTRICAL 108 Unsafe Structures and Equipment 4 REQUIREMENTS 23 109 Emergency Measures 5 Section 110 Demolition 6 601 General 23 111 Means of Appeal 6 602 Heating Facilities 23 112 Stop Work Order 7 603 Mechanical Equipment 23 604 Electrical Facilities 24 CHAPTER 2 DEFINITIONS 9 605 Electrical Equipment 24 Section 201 General 9 606 Elevators,Escalators and Dumbwaiters 25 202 General Definitions 9 607 Duct Systems 25 CHAPTER 7 FIRE SAFETY REQUIREMENTS 27 CHAPTER 3 GENERAL REQUIREMENTS 11 Section Section 301 General 11 701 General 27 702 Means of Egress 27 302 Exterior Property Areas 11 703 Fire-resistance Ratings 27 303 Swimming Pools, Spas and Hot Tubs 12 704 Fire Protection Systems 28 304 Exterior Structure 12 705 Carbon Monoxide Alarms and Detection 31 305 Interior Structure 14 306 Component Serviceability 14 CHAPTER 8 REFERENCED STANDARDS 33 307 Handrails and Guardrails 15 308 Rubbish and Garbage 15 APPENDIX A BOARDING STANDARD 35 309 Pest Elimination 15 Section A101 General 35 CHAPTER 4 LIGHT,VENTILATION AND A102 Materials 35 OCCUPANCY LIMITATIONS 17 A103 Installation 35 Section A104 Referenced Standard 35 401 General 17 INDEX 37 2018 INTERNATIONAL PROPERTY MAINTENANCE CODE® xi INTERNATIONALC©DECOUNyIL' CopyigbtOO?.o17ICCALLRIGHTSRESERVED.AwsedbyGI Dmman(GIvm.Dmm 7:::gov).(CStyofYak eupsept(O:d¢N a:rd oosa0048© SpOB2tn°17AM(PDT(pu�rvartb INTERNATIONAL i�}{ (OD COUNCIL' U REPRODUCTION OR ICC N© ONISA ddi© NOFTHEFEDERi© COPYRIGHT dparty A&ft THE AND SUBJECT MwIL AND CRIMINANYVNLTIESTERE REPRODUCTION OR DISTRIBUTION ISA VIOLATION OF THE FEDERAL COPYRIGHTACF AND THE LICENSEAGREEMENT.AND SUBJECT TO CIVIL AND CRIMINAL PENALTIES THEREUNDER 33 xii 2018 INTERNATIONAL PROPERTY MAINTENANCE CODE® INTERNATIONAL �{i ��yyy{ � tt �CODE COUNCIL Copyagbt@O2o17ICC.ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.Awned by Glenn Denman(Glenn Dmmavpyalamawagov).(City of Yakima Poe Dept)Order Numb¢EIoosaooae on Sep os.vmo 1007 AM(PDT)pursuant to F44 ,flP4/55 iN{ �U 4 Moen.Agreement with ICC No farther reproduction oo further reproductions by any Hurd party oo&oftibuti®authorized.Single user only copying and Mwodwgpaokbited ANY UNAUTHORIZED REPRODUCTION ORDISFIUBUTION ISA VIOLATION OF THE FEDERAL COPYRIGHT ACT AND THE LICENSE AGREEMENT.AND SUBJECT TO CIVIL AND CRIMINAL PENALTIES THEREUNDER 34 CHAPTER 1 SCOPE AND ADMINISTRATION User note: About this chapter:Chapter 1 establishes the limits of applicability of the code and describes how the code is to be applied and enforced. Chapter 1 is in two parts: Part 1—Scope and Application (Sections 101 and 102) and Part 2—Administration and Enforcement (Sections 103—112). Section 101 identifies which buildings and structures come under its purview and references other 1-Codes as applicable. This code is intended to be adopted as a legally enforceable document and it cannot be effective without adequate provisions for its adminis- tration and enforcement. The provisions of Chapter 1 establish the authority and duties of the code official appointed by the authority having jurisdiction and also establish the rights and privileges of the property owner and building occupants.
