Impact of the Uniform Construction Code in Rural Pennsylvania (2010)

September 17, 2010  | Local Government Finance and Administration

This research investigated the potential impacts of the Uniform Construction Code (UCC), which was established under the Pennsylvania Construction Code Act (Act 45 of 1999) and implemented in 2004, in rural Pennsylvania. The research, which was conducted in 2009, also assessed, to some extent, how well the UCC has met some of the goals outlined in the act.
