6 Summer Processes Local Governments Are Bringing Online

As summer approaches, local governments are gearing up to streamline their services to ensure a seamless experience for both residents and visitors. Many local governments are embracing digital solutions to enhance efficiency, accessibility, and sustainability. Let's dive into six summer processes that local governments are bringing online to elevate community experiences.

1. Short-Term Rental Permits

With the rise of short-term rental platforms like Airbnb and VRBO, municipalities are quickly adapting their regulations to effectively manage them. Online short-term rental permit systems allow property owners to apply for permits, submit required documentation, and seamlessly comply with local laws. By digitizing the permitting process, local governments can monitor short-term rentals more efficiently, address compliance issues promptly, and streamline renewals.

Companies like Spatial Data Logic are at the forefront of this solution. SDL Connect allows municipalities to add workflows and schedule inspections, prior approvals, and automatic renewals. This enables local governments to personalize their automation process.

2. Summer Camp Applications

Local governments are modernizing summer camp enrollment by shifting the application process online. Parents can now use digital platforms to browse camps, review details, and submit applications. These user-friendly systems streamline administrative tasks and offer families greater flexibility. From selecting sessions to processing payments, online portals simplify the entire enrollment journey while providing comprehensive information about camp activities.

3. Pool Permits

Property owners can conveniently apply for pool permits through digital platforms. These online systems streamline the application process, allowing applicants to submit the necessary documentation, schedule inspections, and track the progress of their permits with ease. By embracing digital innovation, local governments are not only reducing administrative burdens but also ensuring faster turnaround times for permits, enabling residents to enjoy their pools safely and legally during the summer months.

4. Online Pool and Aquatics Facility Reservations

Local governments are implementing online reservation systems to manage capacity and ensure safe summer access to swimming facilities. Residents can apply for summer access to their local pool facilities online, while office staff can track capacity on the backend. With Spatial Data Logic, municipalities can even take advantage of QR code scanning features, where facility staff can scan each applicant’s personalized barcode for quick pool check-in.

5. Outdoor Dining Permits

To support local businesses and promote outdoor dining options, local governments are implementing online permit systems for sidewalk cafes, parklets, and outdoor dining areas. Restaurant owners can apply for permits, submit design plans, and receive approvals digitally. This will facilitate the expansion of outdoor dining spaces and enhance the vibrancy of commercial districts during the summer season.

6. Outdoor Event Permit Applications

Local governments are introducing online permit application systems to facilitate outdoor events such as concerts, festivals, and farmers' markets. Event organizers can submit permit requests, specify event details, and coordinate logistics digitally, streamlining the approval process and ensuring compliance with regulations.
