Event Description:


WEBINAR VIDEO
CLARITI + ORANGE COUNTY PRESENTATION
POONI GROUP PRESENTATION

If there's anything that 2020 has taught us, it’s governments that have invested in technology have been able to better withstand public health orders compared to those that rely on paper-based and in-person processes.

In the planning and development industry, this has meant delays in permit approvals - impacting building timelines and delaying projects which are critical to economic recovery. With new funding from the BC government to support a modernization of permit approval processes - there’s a unique opportunity to make improvements while local government budgets remain tight. 


 
Join us and our panel for a discussion on the future of permit approvals and learn from the people behind one of the top government permitting programs in North America - Orange County, California - and how their learnings can be applied in BC. 


Key topics we will dive into: 

Overview of impacts in the permit approvals process in 2020
What technology evolution could mean for the BC economy  
How Orange County Public Works Department maintained a 10-day average turnaround over the past year
