Access to building permit information via smart phone

February 22nd, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Access to building permit information has taken an impressive step forward in New York City.  DNAinfo.com reports that people with a smart phone can scan a building permit at a site and have access to a variety of information:

Anyone passing by who wants to know more about a project will be able to scan the QR code with a smart phone and learn about the property owner, the scope of work and any complaints or violations related to that project,” said Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who tested the technology for himself using a permit tacked to the door of 25 Broad Street.

It’ll probably be a chance for most people to play with their phones but the app might reduce calls to the building department in certain situations.
