The City is seeking proposals from qualified consultants to lead a review and modernization of the development approvals and building permitting process. The City has recently experienced dramatic growth, an influx of new residents and a development boom. The existing development approvals process, public communication materials, and document management systems are no longer adequate to handle the high volume and sophistication of development activity.

This project has three phases.  The first phase will analyze the current development process, policies, bylaws, procedures, communication materials and manuals to identify opportunities for greater efficiency and effectiveness.  The second phase of the project will optimize manuals, policies, bylaws and communications materials to improve the development approvals process. These changes will result in increased process efficiency and effectiveness, reduced staff time spent responding to enquiries, and decreased applicant frustration.  The third phase will be to assess and implement a modern development application and building permitting software that will help to standardize and streamline development processes, automate tedious and manual steps, and manage all permitting workflows from start to finish. Improved systems and access to information will increase transparency and residents’ understanding of the development and building permitting process, including how they can become engaged and provide their input.
