Construction Resources Committee

Committee Mission Statement: 
Our mission is to provide guidance and suggestions to improve the public’s perception of the Emmet County Building Department; improve the department’s service to its customers; and to act as a communications conduit with the department for area construction related businesses.

A committee created by the Emmet County Planning, Zoning and Building Department is working hard to ensure the concerns and issues facing builders, contractors and tradesmen in the community are heard.

The Construction Resources Committee began meeting in mid-2011 with several clear goals in mind: Creating a customer service statement, better communication with those in the building trades industry, and improving consistency in code interpretation.

“We want builders and the public to know what we are doing as a committee and that we are a resource for them,” said Martie VanBerlo, Emmet County Building Official.

VanBerlo joins 10 other area builders, tradesmen and community members on the Construction Resources Committee, which currently meets monthly at the Planning and Zoning Department offices, 3434 M-119, Suite E, Harbor Springs (in the John R. Watson Community Building).
