Kendig Keast Collaborative (“KKC”) brings a unique blend of planning and information technology experience. To serve our clients and to meet the exacting demands of our own staff, we have developed several unique computer applications, including a web-based ordinance (enCode-360™) and land use and growth scenario impact model (SAVES™). These applications have been installed in a variety of government settings throughout the nation.
enCode-360TM is a unique internet-based document editing and presentation system used for authoring, displaying, and managing all aspects of your land development regulations, zoning ordinances or entire municipal code. From its humble beginnings as a stand-alone Windows PC Program and its evolution from ZoningPlusTM, enCode-360TM has matured to meet the needs of an innovative and exacting group of code writers and their client communities. Now an internet “cloud-based” service, enCode-360TM allows our clients to bring codification in-house which eliminates the long wait between the time an amendment is adopted and the time it’s published.
SAVES™ is future land use modeling software that allows for the preparation of multiple development scenarios and an instantaneous quantification of their impacts. It is a user-friendly program that allows interactive “painting” of land use categories over maps. When “painting” is completed, SAVES™ scans the alternatives and feeds the land use plan into a sophisticated spreadsheet, which calculates the acreage of each proposed land use and performs detailed environmental, community, and/or fiscal impact analyses. SAVES™ is designed to assist in land use plan scenario analysis and can also serve as an ongoing monitoring and decision guidance system for plan implementation.
