The Department of Doing wants to make it easier for people to know what new development is being considered for Gainesville. On May 4, the department is launching a web-based map, showing all development plans that are under review or recently approved by the city. This allows users to know what is happening in or around their neighborhood, and shows the location of all new projects that are under review and approved.
For each project, the status, application date, project completion date and review cycle are shown with a drawing of the project. “This is part of an ongoing effort to make the development process transparent for our community,” said Department of Doing Director Wendy Thomas. “Our goal is to ensure citizens know what development is occurring. Whether that is putting a sign on the site, putting an ad in the newspaper or creating a map-based notice.“
