Safeguarding Public Health, Safety & General Welfare
The City has adopted the Lake Dallas Municipal Code and International Building Code in order to establish minimum requirements needed to safeguard the public health, safety, and general welfare of its citizens. This is accomplished through:
Adequate light and ventilation
Safety to life and property from fire and other hazards
Therefore, the City of Lake Dallas requires the building permits when construction work is performed within the City limits.
