About the Development Management System (DMS) Project
The focus of the new Development Management System (DMS) is to have an enterprise application that is fully integrated with the County’s Geographic Information System (GIS) and supports the development processes for permitting, plan review, inspections, code enforcement, case/project management, economic development, and other development activities. The new system will provide customers with 24/7 access to their project information, more online functionality, workflow efficiencies, and support the project and partnership approach. Establishing a system that is GIS-centric and project management oriented will help provide a solid foundation for future efficiencies within development service agencies.
