Summary: On November 14, 2017, the City Council introduced an ordinance repealing Chapter 8.24 (Fire Sprinkler Systems) of Title 8, and Chapter 15.42 (Barriers for Swimming Pools, Spas and Hot Tubs) of Title 15; as well as Chapter 15.48 (Hours of Operation for Construction Activities) of Title 15 of the Municipal Code. This would mean the Highland Municipal Code would be returning to the guidelines as provided in the current provisions of the California Fire, Building and other sections of the California Code of Regulations, Title 24.

Status: On November 28, 2017, the City Council considered the ordinance on second reading and it was adopted.
