This is a BIG F'IN DEAL!
Chicago depends on the code being incomprehensible and inaccessible so only does guys dat know da guy get inspector approvals.
It's really, really hard to get a straight answer on what is allowed.

At first I was surprised -- I've been through two Daleys, after all -- but then I realized it makes sense. City Clerk Mendoza has spent her time in office upgrading and streamlining citizens' access to city services. This is of the same piece.

Many thanks to Daniel X. O'Neil for the photograph of me and the Clerk. My bad for leaving that out of the post. (Thanks also to Daniel for putting the entire event together!)

Anybody here involved in similar efforts in their own state or municipality? I'm kinda curious about Florida's efforts in this vein and wondering what I could do to help.
