Canadian municipality selects ESRI Canada’s Enterprise Land Development Solution

ESRI Canada, the provider of land development solutions for local government, along with partners NovaLIS Technologies and iPLANcorp, have been chosen to implement an enterprise GIS-based land development tracking and management system for the Municipality of Clarington, Ontario.

The Municipality of Clarington has selected ESRI’s ArcGIS software and NovaLIS Technologies’ Land Development Office (LDO) as the platform for their enterprise GIS. ESRI Canada’s Enterprise Solution Group will provide the municipality with consulting, implementation, and training services for the Land Development Office (LDO) solution.

The implementation of a land development solution will enable the Municipality of Clarington to view land information in both spatial and tabular formats; access the most up-to-date land information with the click of a button; and avoid duplication of database administration among
departments through data sharing. Key activities in the project include:
* Planning and zoning
* Official plan amendment
* Code compliance cases
* License manager for plumbers and drain layers
* Assessment information integration
* Building permits – complying with Bill 124
* Workflow and tasks implementation
* Web-enable applications

“The Municipality of Clarington will have a common, well-integrated development tracking solution that will support our overall Integrated Enterprise Application which includes Land Development Office and GIS,” said Mayor John Mutton, Municipality of Clarington. “This integrated approach
will help us to meet current and future planning and building needs within the Municipality of Clarington.”

The Municipality of Clarington is a collection of urban centres that includes Bowmanville, Courtice, Newcastle Village, Orono, and more than a dozen rural settlements and hamlets. Having a population of approximately 75,000 residents, the Municipality of Clarington is the fastest growing community east of the City of Toronto and in the Regional Municipality of Durham. Over the past decade, Clarington has experienced a dramatic expansion in its residential population and development.
