The RPBG has scored an important and timely speaker for our September 24, 2019 meeting as Department of Buildings Commissioner Judy Frydland has agreed to address us. 
 
Appointed by Mayor Emanuel in May 2015, the fact that the Lightfoot administration encouraged her to stay on suggests that Commissioner Frydland has been doing something right. And she has. I have seen how she adeptly finds middle ground between many of the key players in the building process and her department has ushered in many important pro industry changes to the City's Building Code. 
 
Commissioner Frydland continually displays tremendous transparency, and she enthusiastically embraces opportunities to interact with people from our industry, including the Summer Soiree.
 

The Department of Buildings is a 285-person department with an annual budget of $37 million. The Department of Buildings supports the safety and quality of life for the residents and visitors of the city of Chicago through enforcement of the Chicago Building Code, including permitting, inspections, trade licensing, and regulatory review.

Get to know our Building Commissioner, learn the latest on Department of Building processes, including inspections; building code updates (when and how does the City embrace the International Building Code and when/how do we deviate from it?), and hear the Commissioner's views on important housing issues and building trends facing the City. Please bring your questions and be prepared to share your views.
 
We will also receive an update on the Just Housing Ordinance, which will be the topic of Board hearings that week. 

If you missed it, here is a Trib article covering the September 4 Rules Committee meeting, where they quoted me.
 
See you on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at @6:30pm!
Sincerely;
Rogers Park Builders Group
