Why is the city updating this software?

The current system has been running since 1994 and is nearing the end of its usefulness. The new City of Boise Permitting and Licensing system, powered by Accela™, will allow integration with ePlanReview and other critical systems within the city, reducing duplication and improving transparency in the processing of applications.

The new permitting and licensing system will ultimately modernize how the Planning and Development Services department provides digital self-service options for citizens, including planning applications, building permits and building inspections.
