The City of Grapevine, TX, is a small but growing city located on the northern end of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. In 1999, John Jennery, the City IT Manager, with the backing of Assistant City Manager Bruno Rumbelow, successfully applied for an ESRI Local Government Start-Up Grant. This case study will review how Grapevine was able to leverage the grant and create the foundation for what has blossomed into a comprehensive Enterprise GIS. Taking a closer look at one of the city's departments we will examine how the Planning Department utilized ArcObjects to automate the entire Zoning and Land Use Case Management process. The City of Grapevine is an outstanding example of how a GIS can flourish in a small city when it has dedicated, capable personnel and the backing of city administrators and department directors.
