Colorado Springs: New City development tracker website provides increased transparency for residents

~ The City of Colorado Springs has taken a step towards increased transparency and clearer communication around land development projects with the launch of a new development tracker webpage. Along with this, the City has also unveiled redesigned posters and postcards to notify residents about development applications in their neighborhoods.

According to acting assistant planning director Katie Carleo, these new tools are aimed at ensuring that residents are aware of proposed development projects in their neighborhoods and have the opportunity to participate in public meetings and provide comments. She emphasized that resident feedback is a crucial part of the review process for any development application, and the City wants to make sure that this process is transparent and easy to understand.

The newly launched development tracker webpage features an interactive map that displays applications currently under review or recently approved. It also provides clear instructions for residents to access additional project information. The webpage serves as a one-stop-shop for all information related to public hearings and upcoming neighborhood meetings for proposed developments. In the future, it will also include tutorial videos on the review process and how residents can be involved in the planning process.

In addition to the webpage, the City has also redesigned its posters and postcards used to notify property owners and residents about development applications in their neighborhood. The new designs are visually appealing and provide clear information about each project. They also include a QR code that directs users to the development tracker webpage, as well as instructions on how they can comment on the application or participate in public hearings or neighborhood meetings.

Residents can access the development tracker webpage at ColoradoSprings.Gov/DevelopmentTracker. With these new tools in place, the City hopes to foster greater community engagement and participation in land development projects.
