Doug Kuhlman, principal
Since 2006 I have been involved with municipalities in both St. Joseph and Cass County serving as their Code Compliance Officer and/or Zoning Administrator.
Zoning has a very significant impact on a community, so I take my position very seriously to keep up on current events and how they may affect each of the communities, and work with each of the boards and commissions to make sure that each of the municipalities are the best that they can be.
I work with the public to assist you with your projects, and to make sure that projects are in compliance with the zoning ordinances. You don’t see a zoning application on line as I prefer to have a one on one conversation to attempt to make the application process as simple as possible.
I was born and raised and have lived in St. Joseph County all my life. My entire career has been in public service. I look forward to working with you was we both strive to make Colon a community to be proud of.
