On a positive note - at least the building department treats lowly residential additions the same as multi-million dollar know, unless you're building giant big box stores and humongous houses on a cornfield.

Had to laugh reading Stinson's comments - his experience is virtually identical to my personal experience with the building department.

"The mindset seems to be 'here's a problem,' not 'here's an issue and how to resolve it'."

Pretty much exactly my impression of the building department.

To be fair, its not entirely staff's fault - when you really get into the City's bizarre by-law and zoning requirements, you really realize how the entire system is designed to output strip malls and new single family houses - defiantly not urban renewal or adaptive re-use.
