The following are the Current Building Codes adopted by the City of Ammon:

  • 2018 International Building Code
  • 2018 International Residential Code
  • 2018 International Energy Conservation Code
  • 2018 International Mechanical Code

The Codes adopted by the City of Ammon are subject to local amendments. Please contact the City of Ammon building department for information on specific amended codes.


Permits are required for any owner or authorized agent who intends to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish, or change the occupancy of a building or structure, or to erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert, or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical, or plumbing system, including lawn sprinkler systems connected to the City water system.

Most permit applications require the submission of plans to be reviewed and approved for code compliance. Our turnaround goal for residential permit applications is 5 working days and 14 working days for commercial permit applications.
