The Community Development Department has two distinct sides, one having to do with planning for the community and the other with building. It is the building division that most people work with, whether they are merely repairing their homes, adding on a room, or building from scratch.A sign in the lobby of the department in the Annex building at 901 Trinity reads: “Building Inspectors are in the office daily 7:30-10 a.m. to meet the public and answer questions about building permits.”“We really encourage people to come in for a pre-application meeting,” said Community Development Director Rick Bohn. “Don’t wait until the end of the job.”“A lot of what we do is education,” added Building Inspector Chris Williams. “People should look at it as a learning experience.”Bohn said the department fills two very different functions.“We have the planning function, which is all about quality of life, and more of a public hearing process,” Bohn said. “We ask people ‘Is this what you want for your community,’ and our code is different than other communities.
