The city also launched a new Development Application Status website, allowing Internet access information on active development projects and planning applications. This is a great step, people can find out about development projects occurring but for detailed information the city planner will have to contacted. (with information provided on the site) The public and development industry, will have access to the same information, such as project data, approval process status, public consultation dates and the planning personal contact info.
The second phase of the site …which brings the project into real usefulness for community groups and residents …will allow users to search applications and developments using dynamic maps. This is needed right now to allow community involvement in the planning process hopefully the city is allowing overtime to accomplish this.
“This will be a useful tool for residents and the development industry,” says Wright. [1. quote from Daily Commercial News article
