Code Enforcement Status Reports
The Development Services Department (DSD) utilizes the Project Tracking System (PTS) to both manage and track its permit processing functions. PTS is an in-house system which DSD began developing in 1998. Although PTS first went into production in 2001, it took several years to fully implement the system in terms of refinements, upgrades, and staff training. As staff became more proficient on the system over time PTS became more fully utilized. In addition, PTS has continuously been updated to enhance its capabilities, and business rules regarding its use have changed over time. As a result, much of the project information found on PTS during the initial years of its existence may not be as inclusive, detailed, or comprehensive as that found for more recent projects. Therefore, please be aware that many of the projects found on PTS may include only basic information. Please also be aware that the most complete source for project details on approved projects and permits can be found within the physical project files stored within the City's official files, which are stored in the Records Management Division of DSD.
