Our Code Library

Take a look at our Code Library of more than 1,900 codes and see how easy it is to navigate through a code online.


Easily search an entire code, sections of code, or any selection of codes featured in the Code Library

• Compare different codes, and save, print, annotate, and email search results

• Auto-responsive display (screen size adjusts to fit the size of your device)

Code Comparison

Municipalities can opt for an additional service that provides access to prior versions of a code in the code library for quick, easy reference. The availability of this information is indicated in a drop-down menu above the Table of Contents on the overview page for the code. When prior code versions are available, users can compare code versions to see where/what changes were made by clicking the toggle arrow icon. Changes between the two codes will be highlighted in the document frame throughout the code.
