The City of Miami has expanded its partnership with Miami-based real estate tech company Gridics, by hosting the city’s Comprehensive Neighborhood Plan on the tech platform.
The technology provides an online portal for developers and citizens to visualize cumbersome zoning, housing and development rules and regulations in one place.
“The old way to determine how zoning applies to a specific property requires citizens and developers to read through the zoning text and try to figure out how the various rules apply to their property,” Gridics CEO Jason Doyle said in a press release. “Most give up and contact city staff. We bridged that gap with our technology, making it easier for developers and citizens to get the zoning data they need via self-service apps, freeing up resource constrained staff.”
The zoning portal combines property search tools, code text publishing and a 3D zoning map that allows users to visualize archaic data and understand how zoning affects a parcel of land.
The app has been adopted by the municipalities of Hollywood, Miami Beach and Coral Gables, among others.
