Putting Roads On A Diet To Cure Traffic Congestion

Just as people try to get healthier with Atkins, Paleo, Whole30 and other popular diet regimens, urban streets can be more trim and less congested when a “road diet” strategy is put in place.

As a Planner, how can General Code help me save time with citizen questions and Code updates?

General Code uses an industry-leading publishing platform that allows us to replicate your thoughtfully designed documents while adding the organizational structure and search features that Codes require. We are proactive in keeping your Code current at all times, greatly trimming the amount of time you and your staff might normally spend doing Code updates yourselves. Finally, by creating a Code that’s concise and readily accessible online, you and your staff will spend less time answering questions from citizens, developers and other users so you can do what you do best – plan for your municipality.

For more information on how General Code can help planners and developers, visit our website. Or look for us at conferences this fall for a live demo.
