Staff in the Department of Planning & Building's Information Systems Section provide technical support for the computer networks, systems, and applications utilized by both Department staff and the general public. The section also provides mapping support services, including geo-spatial data creation, maintenance, and analysis.
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.
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.

View some basic instructions for Land Use View.
Developed in-house by Department of Planning & Building Information Systems staff to replace and improve the property and mapping information previously provided by PermitView. Land Use View (formerly LUView) can be used to explore property information, and to create and export customized maps and lists.
Users can also access permit and permitting information through Land Use View's mapping layers which interface with the department's new Citizen Self Service (CSS) Portal for permit tracking information to view basic details about a permit or permits, and (with the appropriate customer account access) perform additional actions.
Our interactive Land Use View mapping application can be used to look up property information by assessor parcel number (APN) or address.
