As Zoning Inspector, Kameron is looking forward to a smooth and easy transition to a fully virtual platform. Kameron said, “I am excited for this opportunity to serve my community, and even more excited that we are turning this into a fully virtual platform.” The online forms and payment methods will help community members submit their zoning applications quickly and efficiently. It will allow for a timely review and approval process to occur, and if an appeal would happen, it would allow for that process to happen within a respectable amount of time. However, if someone needs to or would prefer to meet in-person a meeting can be arranged between that person and the zoning inspector.
