Seismic Retrofitting

In 2017, the City Council of the City of West Hollywood formally adopted an Ordinance establishing a framework for the seismic retrofitting of certain types of existing buildings. The City’s Building and Safety Division worked with structural engineering consultants to survey the City’s existing building stock and cataloged every building in West Hollywood. The City’s Ordinance for the mandatory seismic retrofitting for soft-story residential and commercial buildings will become effective April 1, 2018. Owners of these properties will be required to have an engineer assess their properties and complete any seismic retrofitting work within five years of receiving notice from the City.
