Let's Bring Your Vision to Life

Revitalizing a Small-Sized Building Department

Welcome to Maryville, Georgia, population 12,000, led by City Manager Maggie.

Maggie and the city's building department have been unable to keep up with increasing workloads. Their backlog has only intensified as residents:

  • Use insurance money to replace roofs following a spring hailstorm
  • Continue to move to the community
  • File complaints about the quality of their public spaces

City Manager Maggie:

  • Time as city manager: < 6 months
  • Platform: Revitalize her small community

Let's see what Maggie accomplishes in the next year:


New High School

With certified inspectors at the ready, Maggie made it possible to:
  • Schedule inspections and manage inspectors online
  • Streamline inspections with multi-disciplinary staffing
  • Receive real-time inspection and project updates

Leading to:

  • Less scheduling & administrative logistics
  • A faster timeline to ribbon cutting

City Hall

With third-party plan reviewers on stand by, Maggie made it possible to:

  • Complete plan reviews electronically

Leading to:

  • Same-day plan reviews
  • Breaking ground faster on new projects

Updated Public Park

With additional resources, such as planning and design, SAFEbuilt helped:

  • Design a practical, eco-friendly public space to better suit the neighborhood
  • Intercept zone codes for Maggie
  • Preserve the historical look and feel of the town

Leading to:

  • A healthier, happier community
  • A more desirable neighborhood to live in

New Housing Development

With a third-party staff member to manage permitting, and SAFEbuilt’s electronic permitting software, Maggie was able to help:

  • The department to keep up with the busy season via an interim permit technician
  • Residents to submit, manage, and approve permits online
  • The department to reduce their outstanding permits

Leading to:

  • Happier residents
  • Well-vetted projects and a safer community
  • Less stress on the building department team (without a full-time hire)
