New housing development applications occur daily in Saint Johns County, Florida. The GIS Office has created numerous procedures and tools to improve how the Growth Management Department handles these applications. These customized tools include ArcMap Map Packet Production, ArcMap Property Buffer Notices, and ArcIMS Drilldown Database Populating. When reviewing boundaries, enterprise GIS layers are properly built from legal descriptions and surveys to ensure accuracy. GIS improves the efficiency of the application process and the accuracy of the decisive information. Equally important, our office supports public awareness of these Development Applications. GIS tools create maps available through newspaper and television. During bi-weekly Board of County Commission and also Planning and Zoning Agency Public Hearings, our GIS Staff administrate the Audio/Visual presentations including dozens of maps. Throughout this process the GIS Staff maintain these applications along with an Enterprise GIS Data Library and the legally adopted Comprehensive Plan Map Series.
