The Planning Department put all its information online in a slick searchable, mappable interface. You can look up how much your property last sold for, the value of renovations, all permits issued for the property, whether you live in a historic resource, the zoning, and many other nifty little details.
An architectural historian friend told me that this information all used to be in an old DOS machine in the lobby of the Planning Department. Now, it’s all online, making her job easier, and our lives more interesting.
