Foster economic growth and community development


Buried in paperwork and spreadsheets? Drive economic development by automating the manual and labor-intensive work of plan reviews and approvals with CityView Planning & Zoning software.

Track and manage all types of planning and zoning applications, as well as development applications, while meeting mandated milestones along the way. Route the approvals; schedule and record the hearings; automate neighborhood notifications through seamless GIS integration; and monitor conditions through the life cycle of the planning and zoning project.

“Staff are using CityView’s capabilities to power a level of business intelligence and efficiency
that has never existed before.”

Geoff Verkade, Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA)


Hit project milestones with defined workflows

  • Automate and monitor complex business processes to ensure that planning and zoning projects follow the guidelines set out for your jurisdiction. Auto-generate approval tracks, critical milestone dates and submittal requirements, all pertinent to the specific type of planning and zoning application.
  • Manage the planning and zoning approval process with a scheduling tool that lets you control the number of agenda items being reviewed at each meeting. This planning and zoning scheduling tool automatically generates neighborhood notifications from a map selection; tracks workflows related to planning and zoning departmental reviews; and helps you easily create staff reports.
  • Ensure you meet your deadlines and adhere to legislated timelines with rule-enforced workflow and reports that show the current status of all planning and zoning projects as well as the actual time spent on reviews, rather than just start and finish dates.

Manage plans in a paperless review process

  • CityView combines electronic submission, versioning and workflow capabilities with the vast functionality of Bluebeam® products for electronic plans review, management of marked up documents and online collaboration.

Conduct spatial analysis with integrated GIS

  • Easily view spatial information, such as land use, zoning and demographic data related to a plan and make informed decisions. Based on the latest Esri ArcGIS Server technology, maps are embedded directly into CityView.

Maintain a complete project history

  • Create a complete history of every planning and zoning project with site plans, digital photos, aerial photos and other relevant documents to the planning application. All correspondence generated by the system is automatically added to this list of documents for an organized, permanent record of the project.
