Community Development responsibility for local government shapes the growth and future of communities.

Typical Challenges for Planning and Development

Challenge 1

I need a better way to manage project workloads both offsite and in-the-field, enable online applications, and to streamline routing across various stakeholders down to the parcel level.


Community Development Software’s integrated suite of powerful planning, permitting, licensing, code enforcement, inspections, and fire and life safety tools work to improve collaboration and eliminate manual processes for your departments and staff in the field, helping you decrease risk and improve productivity.

SeeClickFix integrates with CivicPlus’ Community Development Solution to ensure there is an open, streamlined process to escalate requests to the proper departments and provides online submittals for residents to reduce phone calls and walk-ins.

Challenge 3

I worry that If our Code of Ordinances is not updated in a timely manner, 100% accurate, or published online with advance zoning capabilities,  we may miss out on development opportunities or face safety concerns.


Municode Codification provides industry-leading codification services as well as advanced code publishing and zoning options, enabling self-serving capabilities. With the ability for Community Development to integrate with ViewPro Zoning and SeeClickFix, code enforcement is a made a much simpler process.
