2002 News from Mecklenburg County

May 15, 2002  


Charlotte, NC – It’s that time of year when Mecklenburg County residents spend countless hours tinkering around the house – cleaning, repairing and re-modeling. Whether you’re building a new deck, updating your kitchen or installing an attic fan, the first call you make should be to Mecklenburg County’s Residential Technical Answer Center.  RTAC - the first tool you should reach for - is staffed with certified building inspectors ready to make sure your work is safe and up to code. 

Do-it-yourselfers and home remodelers can take advantage of RTAC at HomeArama 2002.    HomeArama will take place May 18 – June 9, 2002 from 10:00am – 6:00pm in the Highgrove community near Ballantyne. Stop by the RTAC booth and enter to win a toolbox and set of tools worth $150.   

Mecklenburg County Code Enforcement will staff the exhibit in the Home Idea Pavilion, at the entrance to HomeArama.  The exhibit will feature information on remodeling, building decks, taking advantage of North Carolina’s new rehab code, obtaining permits, and much more. 

Mecklenburg County’s Residential Technical Answer Center is a service provided by Mecklenburg County Code Enforcement.  RTAC is available free of charge to contractors and homeowners.  RTAC is staffed by individuals with a North Carolina Code Officials Building Inspector Level 1 Standard Certificate as well as several years of experience in residential construction.   The HomeBuilders Association of Charlotte presents HomeArama 2002 as a preview of the latest ideas in new home design and decorating.
