The new site includes a greeting from the city’s Development Director Bill Thomas:
"Welcome to our innovative website designed to guide you through the development process from inception to occupancy."
Among the site’s elements are so-called “tools of transparency” – web based features to enhance accessibility of development-related information including a permit search engine and a bulletin board system. Jill Scofield is with the Development Services Department.
"It’s about a partnership between the city, developers and community members to really have a good dialogue about projects that are going in Sacramento and making it a more liveable city."
The department will hold a free lunch and learn session for the new site Thursday at the North Natomas Permit Center.
