Planning and Zoning

Cloud-Based Planning and Zoning Software

Your Goal: Sustainable Community Design
Proactive planning and zoning is critical for every growing community. Proper decision-making directly impacts land use and design—guiding your city’s growth, enhancement and preservation over time. It also shapes the future of your community by attracting residents and maintaining a steady stream of revenue. 

Your Challenge: Eradicating Stumbling Blocks
With so many different stakeholders, the planning and zoning process can be riddled with inefficiencies. Without an automated way to view and track permits, communication and approvals, your staff can be easily overburdened.

To optimize efficiency, you need planning and zoning management software that can view and track everything from beginning to end. The right cloud-based software can: 

  • Eliminate or reduce paperwork
  • Ensure compliance with agency policies and codes
  • Facilitate approvals from multiple agencies, citizens and citizen boards
  • Increase transparency 
  • Speed communication
  • Remove bottlenecks and inefficiencies

All the Tracking You Need—All in One Place.
Smart, real-time software that can manage your entire planning and zoning process is the simplest and best way to optimize your resources and stay one step ahead.
