Spring is blooming, and so are things at Accela! From our latest product release to unlocking short-term rental benefits for local governments, this month’s roundup is filled with ways to empower you to continue building smart communities.

Introducing the Spring 2023 Release

The Spring 2023 Release just launched in staging environments! There are updates to just about every aspect of Accela’s product line, reflecting a continued focus on tech modernization, improved administration, and usability enhancements.

Accelarate – September 24-27, 2023

Accela customers’ most anticipated conference will be hosted this year in National Harbor, MD, just outside Washington, D.C. The event will feature in-person solution-specific and technical courses and training, as well as extra time allocated for our popular Community Live session. Save the dates!

Unlocking Short-term Rental Benefits for Local Governments

The development of the sharing economy benefits cities by contributing to post-COVID growth and providing additional revenue. However, it also puts an added onus on government agencies to ensure STRs add to the quality of life for neighborhoods and stay ahead of changing compliance regulations. Learn how government agencies can keep up with the growing STR market.
