Like all cities and counties in Oklahoma with building permit and inspection processes, Sand Springs has adopted the 2015 International Codes Council code series for building construction and trade work, and 2014 National Electrical Code, as adopted and amended by the Oklahoma Uniform Building Codes Commission. A code set is available for public viewing in the Neighborhood Services office during normal business hours. To view the OUBCC amendments, go to www.ok.gov/oubcc/. The only local amendment requires installation of backwater valves on all building drain sewer connections.
The goal of the Zoning Code is to create a diverse community with compatible land uses that safeguard the public’s health, safety, peace, morals, comfort, convenience, prosperity, order, and general welfare.
The Board of Adjustment, in granting a Special Exception, may set conditions and safeguards as necessary and may also limit the Special Exception to a specified period of time. Additional measures may also be required to assure compliance with the conditions.
Once approved, applicants have up to two years to implement the use requested or obtain a building permit and initiate construction.
