On Jan. 7, the City of Redmond will launch its new permitting and land management system known as E-Track.
In a news release, city officials said the City’s new E-Track system will significantly improve the City’s development and permitting processes by providing a highly integrated web portal to submit, track and manage a variety of development projects and services using one convenient web application. Redmond is among the first cities in the region to adopt this technology.
“We wanted to centralize our permitting and land management processes into one integrated system that could scale and grow as our needs evolve,” said Rob Odle, Redmond planning director.
E-Track provides anytime, anywhere access. It provides customers the ability to access permits, plan cases (i.e. land use), and business license information; request inspections on specific permits; view today’s inspections; perform global permit and plan case searches by address, parcel or permit type; and subscribe to permits or plan cases to receive current updates associated to those projects.
“We see E-Track as an exciting way to expand connections between projects and services while enhancing the City’s focus on economic vitality yet remaining business and citizen friendly,” said Mayor John Marchione. “With the continued growth and development within our two urban centers, downtown and Overlake, the new E-Track system will significantly streamline business practices for permitting and land management,” he adds.
The City will also implement a second portal known as E-Review. This will allow individuals to electronically submit plans, reports, and other supporting documents associated to active permits. Additionally, the sight allows for two way communication with City staff.
To facilitate this transition, City Planning Department staff will offer educational training sessions on E-Track and provide instructional materials, which can also be found at: www.redmond.gov/e-track.
