What We’re Working on
How we implement Esri functionality into our applications.
Our Zoning and Permitting Application is Officially Rebranded With a New Name… SmartPermit!
NPGS developed SmartPermit to eliminate hand-written permit applications and allow public users to apply and pay for their land use permits online with an easy-to-use application process.
SmartPermit will officially be listed on the Esri Marketplace in the near future. To learn more about this application and its capabilities visit our Permitting Solutions page or contact us at [email protected].
