The City of McAllen is adopting several new building codes and came to that decision on the basis of the safety for the public. Currently, McAllen is still operating under the approved 2006 building codes after there were no new codes adopted in 2009 as Luis Vasquez, Chief Building Officer, stated, "Come 2009 we did not adopt those codes, so we have some pretty outdated codes per say. We are going on six years with outdated codes." The new codes will take affect in January 2013, but if anyone wants to see ahead of time what those new codes will be posted on the city's website: http://www.mcallen.net/devservices/permits/default.aspx
