DPS Exchange Panel

Montgomery County's Department of Permitting Services is hosting an exchange panel in March with The Structural Engineers Association of Metro Washington (SEA-MW).  The SEA-MW  currently represents 60 consulting design firms that practice in the DC, Virginia and Maryland.  The goal is to find solutions for outreach that works for both sides and seeks to improve both the process and the submissions that DPS receives from their group.  Some of the topics to be explored are: 



Why does the code exit?

What is the role of Structural Engineer of Record in submittal and inspection process of applications?

What are the expectations from DPS and the design teams?

Look for some of the ideas and solutions from this exploration in upcoming Constructive Comments.

Save the Date Design for Life

Call for Exhibitors and Save the DATE

On May 5, 2018, Permitting Services will host the 2nd Annual Design for Showcase for residents and businesses to learn more about the property tax credit available for making homes  accessible.  The Showcase allows residents to see examples of accessible homes by adding features or creating a home that makes room for all stages of life from young families with strollers, mobility issues and aging.  Breakout sessions about how the tax credit works will also be held throughout the day.
Last year residents discovered ways to make homes accessible for all types of budgets and projects.  This year's exhibit promises to be even bigger.  There is no charge for exhibitors, however businesses must provide services or products for accessible living.  Space is limited.  So register soon! To register contact: Jessica Fusillo at Jessica.Fusillo@montgomerycountymd.gov or call 240-777-0311 or 311.  For information on the Design for Life program go to www.designforlifemc.org .
