Sometimes video speaks louder than words. Today’s blog includes three to show you what’s new on the SDL Portal.

New Portal Request Pages
Newly-designed landing pages help users get to the right place quickly and easily. Interactive maps, search functions, hints and drop-down boxes help ensure that submissions are right the first time, eliminating the frustrating delays caused by missing or incorrect data.

New Building Permit Features
A new layout and new workflow make things easy for residents who dread the permit process. The Portal walks each user down the most straightforward path to a complete and error-free permit application, saving multiple trips to town hall.
