LATEST PRESS RELEASE: Towns Ready to Connect to New Regional Wide Area Network; CapeNet Contracted to Build, Connect and Maintain RWAN - 9/22/14
With funds from a 2012 Massachusetts Community Innovation Challenge Grant, the regional Strategic Information Office (SIO), managed by the Cape Cod Commission, began work in Fiscal Year 2013 on an ePermitting, Licensing, and Inspection System.
When fully implemented, the online system will allow Cape Cod municipalities to issue and monitor permits, licenses, and inspections, with a web-based portal for citizens and contractors. The system will implement a common technology infrastructure and software to be adopted regionally but tailored to each town. One goal is to eliminate redundant individual purchases and save public municipal funds.
The Cape Cod Commission hired an applications implementation manager in Fiscal Year 2013 to work with communities and the vendor (Accela) on installations. The SIO staff started with the towns of Chatham, Yarmouth, and Nantucket, beginning with the inspection services and building/health permitting components of the system.
