During their meeting on Thursday, Jan. 3, the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners presented City-County Planning and Development Services with a plaque recognizing them for winning an international award for code innovation.

According to board chair David Plyler, Planning and Development Services was awarded the 2018 Code of Excellence Award from the International Code Council for a new process they created to make it easier to repurpose buildings. The ICC board of directors, which represents more than 70,000 building code officials across the world, unanimously chose the department for their collaborative effort to make the process a success.

Before presenting chief building official Dan Dockery and city-county planning director Aaron King with the plaque, Commissioner Tonya McDaniel congratulated both men for their success. After accepting the honor, Dockery thanked the Board of Commissioners and others throughout the community for their continued support. He said the effort was started in 2009 and was submitted to the ICC board last year.

“It wasn’t just us; it was realtors, developers, builders, everybody that had an interest in seeing these marvelous buildings and structures not go to waste, but instead be reused to get people into them quicker, get businesses started sooner, give them a better chance of success,” said Dockery. “That’s supposed to be what it’s all about and again, thank you for giving us the support.”
