clearzoning: an economic development strategy

305

Published on

This brief presentation illustrates how today\'s technology can transform municipal zoning codes into easy-to-use electronic documents that are searchable, hyperlinked, and feature graphics (in place of words) to illustrate development regulations. A clear and more visual zoning code can lead to internal cost-savings and efficiency, while attracting economic development with its 24/7 availability.
