    CIVIC APPLICATIONS

    Civic Application for Environmental Health V1

    This new Civic Application includes 39 pre-built record types and functions for environmental health processes in retail food, land use, recreational health, personal services and institutions. It is an out-of-the-box solution that provides full functionality for permit automation, reports and notifications, payment processing, plan review, enforcement and complaints, and many other functions.

    Civic Application for Planning V2

    The Spring release adds 18 new record types to the 10 currently in the first version of the Planning Civic Application to broaden the capabilities for our Planning customers. Examples of the new functionality includes the processing of permits for special use, floodplain development, and planned unit development. It also includes a redesign of the zoning verification form letter and a new renewal process for the home occupational permit.

    Civic Application for Building V2

    This second version of our Building Civic Application adds 19 new record types to the 37 currently in V1, making it an even more robust solution for community development functions. Some examples of the new capabilities include sign permits, various enforcement cases, change of information functions, permit extensions, and many others.

    All Accela Civic Applications are bundled with pre-built Code Enforcement functionality, so there is no need to implement a second solution for enforcement activities.
