Join our next discussion with DCRA as we jointly develop a series of project related checklists to speed our projects through plan review. Michael Brown, DCRA Residential Center Manager has offered to meet with our Government Affairs Committee monthly to help us better understand the requirements and help us get through the permitting process on the first review.
Each month on the 3rd Thursday at 2pm we will focus on an area of plan review to better understand the requirements in DC and how to provide the needed information in our plan sets. The ultimate goal is to build a set of specific checklists for different types of projects like a Kitchen or Bath Remodel. Submit the permit application, check off all the boxes and get a permit right away, that sounds like a pretty good idea!
This Thursday, 6/17 at 2pm we will meet with Amber Sturdivant from DOEE. Amber is in charge of the Lead Paint Program and oversees renovation as well as abatement projects, firm certifications and training programs for supervisors and workers. Our discussion will be focused on residential Renovation projects and what is required and when a project becomes a greater Abatement project with a goal of developing a simple checklist of what is required and what information should be submitted with the permit application to keep us within the Renovation requirements.
DOEE is currently reviewing their own Lead Paint Program so our discussion comes at an opportune time for us to help clarify, simplify and speed the review process for our typical renovation projects. Amber will explain where they are in the process and how we can help.
This is a virtual meeting, no reservations are required, all are welcome to attend and contribute.
