Per direction of the Legislative Strategy Committee (LSC), the MBA has sought to establish a quarterly Roundtable with Edgewood building and planning staff, the mayor, and interested LSC members. Last week, we hosted the first quarterly meeting. Their Community Development Director, mayor, and a building official were all in attendance. They discussed challenges they were having with a small staff and their process to pursue online permitting for records and applications.
Ultimately, we set an ambitious agenda and thoroughly covered two topics- creating a model home program and discussing the permit tech state- all the while highlighting the importance of concurrency with permit processes.
We look forward to continuing to work with Edgewood and develop a good partnership with the City.
