Silicon Valley's New E-permit System

A public-private effort in Silicon Valley has resulted in a new, homegrown e-permitting system.

A public-private collaboration in Sunnyvale, California has resulted in "... a relatively new line of software developed by the city of Sunnyvale, Calif. The centerpiece of the software is "e-Permits," a Web-enabled application that allows the public to apply for, pay for and obtain a number of building-related permits through the Internet. E-Permits has created quite a buzz among Sunnyvale's neighbors and has already been named a "Top 25 Technology Solution" by Public Technology Inc. and a "Best Exhibitor Solution" by Government Technology."
