San Diego Selects Accela’s Civic Platform
The city of San Diego has selected Accela’s, www.accela.com, San Ramon, Calif., Civic Platform to upgrade its software system for coordinating projects. San Diego is replacing its legacy system and rolling out Accela Right of Way Management and its core software modules on the Civic Platform.
“We’re excited to help San Diego maintain its innovative culture by modernizing its project coordination and ability to inform citizens,” says Maury Blackman, president and CEO, Accela. “We understand that citizens want to know what’s happening on their streets and in their community, and we look forward to working with San Diego to make this information easily available online.”
San Diego has a population of nearly 1.3 million. The city’s department of information technology is committed to providing value through innovation to city departments and staff, and in turn to San Diego residents and businesses. Recognizing the need to upgrade its project coordination software as well as make information on major projects accessible to the public, the city decided to shift to Accela’s advanced and scalable cloud-based Right of Way Management solution.
The city will implement the following Right of Way Management modules:
- Utility coordination: Enhancing the coordination of San Diego’s right-of- way activities in realtime, minimizing conflicts and unnecessary street cuts while stretching budgets;
- Events and incidents: Enabling the city to plan its events and avoid conflicts with other planned activities and projects in the right of way;
- Permitting: Upgrading its permitting process, eliminating duplicate data entry, facilitating a faster turnaround time and detecting potential conflicts with other projects or permits;
- Citizen’s view: Giving San Diego residents a user-friendly, interactive Website displaying roadway construction, traffic impacts, and community events on a map, calendar, timeline, and more.
