The Department of Development Services uses GIS to provide the most recent parcel, utility, transportation, and environmental information for access by County employees and citizens. This supports the Department’s permitting and inspection software (Cityworks), achieve DEQ MS4 Permit requirements, and assists in completing the County’s MS4 Annual Report. In addition, staff is available to create custom maps using any of the features available in GIS, including drainage areas, floodway & floodplain boundaries, utility infrastructure, topography, and other maps.
As an example of the types of maps that can be created, a custom map displaying the locations of Dog Waste Stations installed throughout the County’s public parks and greenways is annually updated by the Department of Development Services. These kiosks dispense Mutt Mitt bags for picking up pet waste, which helps to reduce the discharge of E. coli from dog waste washed into receiving waters. Links to a PDF map of Dog Waste Stations and a list of existing dog waste stations are provided below.
