Farmingdale’s leadership is excited to help modernize processes for its staff, who have traditionally relied on paper to manage its construction, land use and code enforcement processes. In addition to better transparency and efficiency, SDL’s software will make it easier for the borough to manage its planning and zoning applications, permit applications, plan reviews, boards, inspections, property registrations and other development processes. Additionally, with SDL’s mobile app, inspectors can access property history, schedules, applications, statutes, and conduct inspections directly from the field using a smartphone or tablet.

The New Jersey Sports & Exposition Authority Selects SDL

July 20, 2023 - SOMERSET, NJ - Spatial Data Logic is excited to welcome its newest software client, the New Jersey Sports & Exposition Authority! The NJSEA’s Land Use Management division will be utilizing SDL’s Construction and Land Use software to oversee various construction and land use processes for municipalities that fall within the Meadowlands District. Those municipalities include Carlstadt, East Rutherford, Little Ferry, Lyndhurst, Moonachie, North Arlington, Ridgefield, Rutherford, South Hackensack, Teterboro, Jersey City, Kearny, North Bergen and Secaucus. By utilizing SDL’s software, the division aims to modernize processes for its staff, streamline communication for the municipalities in its district, and improve services for applicants.

The NJSEA is responsible for reviewing various construction plans, specifications and details to ensure UCC compliance for any new construction, alterations and renovations for buildings that fall within its purview. It also oversees other land use regulations in the Meadowlands District such as planning, zoning, redevelopment and floodplain management. Working alongside the local municipality, they make sure all necessary steps have been completed including application approvals, plan reviews, fee collections, certificates of plan release, inspections, and certificates of completion/occupancy approval.

Historically, the NJSEA’s Land Use Management division has accepted land use/zoning and construction code plan review applications via email, while fees needed to be physically mailed or dropped off during designated office hours. With SDL’s electronic permitting and plan review software, applicants will be able to submit applications, plans and payments online. Meanwhile, staff members will benefit from a comprehensive software solution that enables them to electronically process, manage and track applications, plan reviews, payments, inspections, certificates and other related tasks.

The software will also make it easier for the NJSEA to share information with the local construction office, many of which are already SDL software users. Instead of emailing application packets to the municipality or putting the onus back on the applicant, the NJSEA will be able to associate applications, plans and inspection results with the property. This will enable municipalities that use SDL’s software to see where an application stands before continuing with plan reviews, inspections, fee collections or certificate issuance.

To assist with inspections, the NJSEA can take advantage of SDL’s mobile application. SDL Mobile offers convenient access to property history, statutes, applications, checklists and other information when completing inspections and other tasks in the field. Should the division choose to utilize the app, it will enable their inspectors to work more efficiently and stay in better communication with their office staff.

Furthermore, the NJSEA intends to leverage SDL’s unlimited digital form builder to transition even more of its paper-based processes online. By utilizing SDL Forms, the division can digitize its paper forms while incorporating advanced features and workflows like electronic signatures, document uploads, electronic payments, inspection processes, renewal processes and more.

We look forward to helping the NJSEA get started with its new software!
