Before you buy a piece of open ground in order to build something, you must know a great deal about the regulations and codes which surround such development.  It is truly complex.  Joe Skinner gave us a taste of the rigorous regulations and codes along with a bit of what the ADA guidelines are.  It is truly impressive that many places are successfully being built.  It is testimony to the fact that we can live with regulations and succeed, but it is also obvious that it is a daunting task to understand and apply seemingly conflicting rules.  We got down to a few specific issues surrounding Chestertown which were of high interest to the audience.  One of our County Commissioners, Bob Jacob, was in attendance.  It is great to see one of the Commissioners pay us a visit when the subject for the day is of special interest.

It is a broad and impressive topic filling several large books Joe brought with him on National Building standards.  Of course, these standards refresh every three years, so life-ling learning remains essential.  The devil in in the details and this topic is loaded with details…..  Thank you Joe.  It was educational for all.
