Virtual "One Stop Shop" Aids Businesses, Developers, Madison Residents
Mayor Dave Cieslewicz and city officials launched the new Development Services Center website or virtual "one stop shop" today. For the first time, the site provides a central location for information to guide a building project of any size from start to finish.
"In today's economic climate, we need to continue to work to provide the resources to all those who want to invest in our community," Mayor Cieslewicz said. "Today we're taking a step in the right direction with the virtual one stop shop. And in the future, we'll continue working towards a full Development Services Center."
The virtual Development Services Center is available at http://www.cityofmadison.com/developmentCenter/.
The site has information compiled on everything from development review to permitting to inspection processes for all City agencies.
"Today we're moving forward on our economic development plans, carrying out one crucial step to making Madison government more helpful to business and developers," Cieslewicz said. "Now more than ever, we must be focused on providing the resources to spur economic development in our community."
The site compiles critical resources for businesses, developers and Madison residents in one easy-to-use location. The site provides information and assistance to obtain permit application forms, agency checklist requirements, process flowcharts, timelines, process requirements, staff contact information, links to relevant planning documents and ordinance requirements.
