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.

Track and manage all types of planning, zoning and development applications, and meet 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 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 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 application.
  • Manage the approval process with a scheduling tool that lets you control the number of agenda items being reviewed at each meeting; automatically generates neighborhood notifications from a map selection; and tracks workflow related to departmental reviews and creation of 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 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 project with site plans, digital photos, aerial photos and other relevant documents to the application. All correspondence generated by the system is automatically added to this list of documents for an organized, permanent record of the project.
