We welcomed our District Governor Scott Bayline to our meeting last Wednesday to share all about his plans and goals for Rotary District 7280 this year. Club President Adam Meneo was presented the District Governor with our donation towards his projects.
Ken Hinton, from the City of Warren Building Code Enforcement, came and spoke to the club. The department issues building permits and performs construction inspections under the Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code (UCC) and International Construction Code (ICC) for the City of Warren.
Building permits are required for most projects such as new homes, additions, alterations, basement remodeling, sunrooms, swimming pools, spas/hot tubs, decks, and accessory buildings larger than 150 square feet. Permits run between $150-$200.
Projects such as minor repairs of a non-structural nature, painting, carpeting, door and window replacement, and roofing do not require a building permit. Some projects such as small accessory buildings and fences require only a zoning permit. It is recommended that the Building Code Department be consulted to confirm whether a permit is required for any planned projects.
The Rotary Club of Warren, in partnership with Warren County Development Association, received a generous donation from the Northwest Charitable Foundation to be used toward the construction of the multi-sensory inclusive playground that is to be built as part of the City of Warren’s renovations of Lacy Park, which they will tentatively break ground on in the summer of 2019.
