One of Portland’s top building inspectors is coming under fire for not getting building or electrical permits for construction on his home and his mother’s home. The same inspector was criticized a longer time ago fro signing off on projects for his own home. The inspector blames “overzealous” regulators (insert joke here). Here we have the truth that even for a building inspector expert the rules are too burdensome.
Add this to the list of others such as Erik Sten buying a large home after spending years trying in different ways to force Portland builders to build smaller homes. Or how about the City of Wilsonville that tried to bypass land-use laws we have to follow because they took too long.
