Services

Geographic Information System Administration

The Department of Planning & Building's geographic information system (GIS) - part of the larger, countywide enterprise GIS - is administered by information systems staff who create, maintain, analyze, and map geo-spatial data. This data is used to support many of the Department's day-to-day operations, and is made available to the general public through its LUView mapping application and as raw data in the form of web-based API services.

EnerGov (Permit Tracking System Administration)

In February of 2018, the Department of Planning & Building implemented a new Planning/Permitting/Land Use software system, EnerGov, to replace the previous system.  EnerGov utilizes an industry-leading platform and integrates GIS to automate and connect workflow processes to streamline and improve services. 

EnerGov is fully integrated with a Customer Self Service (CSS) Portal, and provides tools to better automate business processes, resulting in improved accuracy, efficiency, and responsiveness.
