In smaller communities I believe it is vital builders and prospective home buyers know their building official on a first-name basis, and that goes into the customer service we provide.
During this time, I have seen tremendous residential growth (Summerwood, Woodbridge, and Keystone first come to mind). These subdivisions help spur new residential and commercial growth, with now a new commercial corridor being established with neighborhood amenities that homeowners are taking advantage.
We now provide for the ability (if necessary) to provide inspection services digitally. Our turn-around times for plan review and permitting have remained extremely fast; from initial submission to a building permit in hand five days or less. All forms are available on-line and staff is well equipped to assist through the submission process.
Like most rural city inspectors, I represent multiple communities. However, I am in the city of Dilworth every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for on-site inspection and meetings. Additionally, I am available any other day of the week by phone or email.
I hope everyone has a great fall and we look forward to you building in Dilworth!
