Open house sessions will let developers and public preview new system that will launch Oct. 16

The City of McKinney is pleased to announce the upcoming implementation of the new land management software system EnerGov that will streamline processes for developers, improve data quality and increase public access to information from the Development Services Division. The new system will also allow for inspectors, code enforcement officers and other land use officials to update and access data in the field, ultimately providing timely and relevant data to assist management in making better decisions. EnerGov will launch Oct. 16.

Community members will be able to access the Citizen Self Service portal from a computer, tablet, or smart phone to apply for permits, request inspections, create new development cases and view real-time data on their projects.

Prior to the transition to the new software, staff will hold a series of open house sessions for developers and the public to preview the EnerGov platform. The sessions are the same so attendance at multiple sessions is not necessary unless additional exposure to the software is desired. The sessions will be located in the Dulaney Room of the Roy & Helen Hall Memorial Library, 101 E. Hunt St.
