E-Permitting

A couple weeks ago, it was reported that the Town of Barnstable will be added to the list of Massachusetts communities transitioning to online permit applications. Barnstable approved the $200K+ expenditure to pay for the software and related maintenance that will eventually allow residents to file permit applications-including requests for variances-online.

Other Massachusetts communities embracing some form of e-permitting include Manchester-By-The-Sea, Maynard, Hopkinton, and Andover.

Maybe it's the cold weather, but this seems like a step in the right direction for both constituents, contractors, and busy zoning/land use attorneys who otherwise would be required to file applications in person.
