Re: tax incentives, San Antonio is also exploring the potential of making demolition WAY more expensive by making the permit itself a lot more expensive. (It’s only, like, $75 to get a demo permit right now - definitely not a deterrent!) A permit would be significantly less expensive for deconstruction. We’ll see!

We need to reinvent County Government and Regionalize Permitting

One issue we’re still trying to solve in San Antonio relates to permitting, too. We anticipate needing a comprehensive internal training program to get inspectors and code enforcement officers up to speed. There’s no true barrier to reusing reclaimed materials structurally, but our own inspectors have told us they wouldn’t allow it just because they don’t know how to approve it. We also are actively working on training code enforcement officers to not cite active deconstruction sites that might be in conflict with property maintenance codes!

Thanks, Joe1 I will try and follow up with you to learn about that

Cj, right , no one is looking at the total inputs and outputs on a town scale , whether it be building materials or food.

My brother is an architect and quality wood is rare and pricey....
CJ May - Waterbury
02:06:14
But a municipality is not financially involved with that direcdtly.
CJ May - Waterbury
02:07:01
Good points about income potential. Thanks
CJ May - Waterbury
02:07:50
I would add in that as a post-industrial mill town like Waterbury we might make use of old brownfield factories to serve as a decon warehouse.

I agree with Kathleen to focus on the economics - money talks!
Stephanie Phillips - San Antonio (she/her/hers)
02:11:46
I’ve seen a lot of interesting research come out of Yale’s Master of Environmental Management program, specifically around the circular economy!
Joe DeRisi
02:12:33
Kathleen, yes, there needs to be an analysis including all the economics, including "externalities,", that is the long term economics , not the job balance sheet level. Hey I could do a second thesis if someone will pay for it.
Stephanie Phillips - San Antonio (she/her/hers)

Our partners in Pittsburgh said our report was the final catalyst in their recent executive order to pursue a deconstruction policy! You never know what might be the lightbulb moment for your decision makers. :) https://pittsburghpa.gov/mayor/deconstruction

Sorry if I appear to be anti-decon! I am VERY much in favor of it but playing devil's advocate here to get help in making this issue of interest to municipal decision makers. I must head back to other work. Thanks very much for great presentations and discussion! cmay@waterburyct.org
