When you’re replacing a system as complex as the one that manages all municipal building and land-related services, you need a diverse team of subject matter experts tackling it together. Matt Brozincevic and Emma Passmore are two of the seasoned City veterans contributing to this project, helping to build Ottawa’s entirely new Land Management System (LMS).
The LMS is part of the City’s five-year modernization project to provide residents with digital access to building code services, planning and development, right of way, heritage and urban design, and committee of adjustment. The LMS replaces the 20-year-old Municipal Application Partnership (MAP) software, which currently requires residents working on construction projects to submit applications either in person at a City service counter or by email.
Finding the sweet spot where technology, business needs and software capabilities meet
The LMS subject matter is highly technical and that’s where Matt’s expertise comes in. Matt brings a deep understanding of the processes and regulations tied to construction projects, large and small.
“Imagine how many different processes are tied to ‘land’,” Matt explains. “It can include development with all its infrastructure, buildings that go on the land, zoning, building code enforcement, conservation, demolition, sign installation – the list goes on.”
