North Royalton Building Commissioner Dan Kulchytsky has announced his resignation, effective June 30. His resignation was reported by Mayor Larry Antoskiewicz at the June 7 City Council meeting.
“I was originally from Parma and I still live in Parma,” noted Kulchytsky. “The Building Commissioner for the City of Parma is resigning and this position will give me the opportunity to try new things and also to face different challenges, but I think I’m up for it. I have enjoyed working with our team here; they are great. At this time, the move makes sense.”
Kulchytsky was approved as the Mayor’s appointment to the position of Building Commissioner in October of 2012, replacing Rito Alveraz, who retired. Kulchytsky served as the Building Commissioner for the City of Euclid and Building Official, Plan Examiner, Backup Building Inspector and Backup Plumbing Inspector since January of that year. Before that he served as Plan Examiner and Backup Building Official for the City of Seven Hills and Plan Examiner and Backup Building Official for the City of Parma. He also is the founder of Kulchytsky Architects, LLC, which he started in 1999. He was the Project Manager and Designer for van Dijk Pace Westlake Architects and served as a teacher for Kent State University.
Kulchytsky attended Kent State University, School of Architecture and Environmental Design, where he received his Bachelor of Science Degree in 1993; his Bachelor of Architecture in 1994 and his Master of Architecture in 1996. He is certified as an Architect by the State of Ohio, and is recognized as a Building Official, Master Plans Examiner, Building Inspector, Plumbing Inspector, Residential Building Official, Residential Plans Examiner and Residential Building Inspector through the Ohio Board of Building Standards. He is also affiliated with the International Code Council and the Building Officials Conference of North East Ohio.

“I would like to wish Dan well and thank him for his work as Building Commissioner. Under Dan’s leadership the building department has grown into a more efficient and knowledgeable operation that better serves our businesses and residents,” said Antoskiewicz. He said that the City is accepting applications for the position.
