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 computerized zoning ordinance (ZoningPlus™) and land use and growth scenario impact model (SAVES™). These applications have been installed in a variety of government settings throughout the nation.
ZoningPlus™ is an Internet-based editing, content management, and presentation system used for authoring, displaying, and managing all aspects of a code of ordinances, zoning ordinance, development code, or any other large document that includes text, tables, illustrations, maps, videoclips, and any other forms of online media. ZoningPlus™ is an integrated system that extends the concept of simply publishing an e-code (or any massive document) on the web as straight HTML or one or more PDF documents.
ZoningPlus™ provides the client community with the ability to publish (and archive) code updates in real time, and provides the end-user with intuitive access to codes, maps, and other tools (such as online calculators, application forms, permitting systems, etc.) from a single interface.
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.
