ZoneCheck is a user-friendly address and parcel search tool that makes it easy for citizens and staff to quickly access parcel-specific zoning data on any device. Search any address/folio in a calibrated municipality and ZoneCheck displays up to 30+ attributes including allowed uses, setbacks, overlays, density, and more.
As part of the Gridics platform, ZoneCheck integrates seamlessly with code text publishing and zoning maps, allowing users to easily navigate to the text/map and ensuring a municipality’s online zoning resources are always up-to-date.
It’s no secret zoning in any municipality is complicated for citizens and developers to understand. With hundreds of pages of regulations, overlays, permits, and special districts governing the use of each parcel, it’s no wonder planning departments are inundated with thousands of questions each year. Hollywood staff has long been overwhelmed with questions like, “What can I build on this parcel?” and “What are the allowed uses for this site?”
These citizen inquiries bog-down staff members who otherwise could be focused on higher-value projects. In addition, the quality of citizen service and information transparency often declines as a municipality grows and more questions arise.
Gridics developed ZoneCheck to make it simple for citizens, developers, and stakeholders to access the data they need for any parcel in a given city. Just one address search in ZoneCheck yields 30+ data points specific to that site (allowed uses, lot size, existing building area, maximum footprint, and more). By adopting ZoneCheck, Hollywood has decreased zoning inquiries by 60% and improved staff efficiency, all while providing a higher level of service to citizens, increasing transparency, and delivering a next-generation technology solution.
ZoneCheck takes the hassle out of zoning management. One tool, accessible on any device, saves staff hundreds of hours each year and gives the private sector on-demand access to the most advanced zoning data available. Gridics can digitize your municipal zoning and launch your custom ZoneCheck portal in as little as 6 weeks for a fraction of the cost of alternatives
