Introduction to Land Use Outreach

Land Use Outreach can be used to share development regulations, construction activity, and solicit feedback on current land cases from the public.

It provides 24/7 access to an organization and streamlines the development process. The inclusive approach increases public trust reduces the need to attend meetings in person, and helps government agencies harness feedback from the public to make better decisions about development in the community. Land Use Outreach is typically implemented by planning departments, public work agencies and other local government agencies that want to increase transparency and encourage public participation.

The Land Use Outreach solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you share land use, zoning and other (for example, floodplain) regulations, generate awareness about permitted construction activity and engage the public when new developments are proposed.
