MOUNT VERNON — The county’s 2018 Comprehensive Plan update suggests taking a look at a county-wide residential building code.

The updated plan, presented to the Knox County Commissioners Thursday, recommends “a thorough examination of best practices in building code enforcement.”

Darrel Severns, regional planning commission director, said the building codes came up as a topic of interest at meetings discussing the comprehensive plan update.
