News: Town Development Activity Map gets an upgrade

Have you ever seen construction activity around Town and wondered what was coming? The Town recently launched an upgraded development activity map with a new interactive, web-based tool that allows users to locate and follow development projects throughout the planning process.

The new mapping platform provides up-to-date, detailed and searchable information on pending and active development projects within the Town, and projects recently closed. The new interactive map replaces the previous Development Activity Map.

“The upgraded development map is an excellent tool for residents and businesses to review the projects taking place throughout the Town,” said Development Services Director Tara Vargish. “This is one example of our efforts to provide more access and transparency regarding current development in our community.”

Visit CRgov.com/DevelopmentActivity, and select the map link to access the map. The new Development Activity Map includes color-coded pins marking projects currently under review, recently approved projects and projects recently closed. Clicking on the pins on the map gives you the project information and a link to more details. You also can scroll through the list of projects, or enter a term to narrow the list.

The information on the new Development Activity Map is more accurate and up-to-date than ever because the data is updated directly from the Town’s electronic review and permitting system. Other features of the development map include side tabs to easily switch between projects, recent submittals and pre-application meetings.
