Mission
The mission of Lane County's Building Safety Program is to protect the public health and welfare wherever hazards associated with the design, erection, repair, removal, demolition or occupancy of structures have the potential to exist within the county's jurisdiction. The Building Safety Program endeavors to fulfill this mission through the efficient, professional, and equitable administration of nationally recognized code standards and local regulations.

Announcements

Recent interest and awareness of the Cascadia Subduction Zone and the potential for large earthquakes in Oregon has produced a wealth of information that identified potential hazards.
Lane County Building Safety  has begun to review residential structural permits to more closely evaluate these hazards. A geotechnical or soils report (OSSC Section 1803.6) from a  qualified licensed professional in Oregon will be required if the site for the proposed structure does not meet ascending and descending setback requirements, is identified within a liquefaction or landslide hazard area, will be located on a slope 20% (2:10 or 11.3 degrees) or greater prior to excavation, or is required by the Planning Program to have a special foundation system. Click the following link to for further information as to when a report will be required.  Geo-Technical Hazards Notice.
