"Phoenix continues its quest to be the best place in the nation for job creation and expanding a business. Recently the city instituted electronic plan review, with video conferencing to follow in early 2014. Electronic plan review makes 24-hour hiring a reality. It was part of a larger plan giving Phoenix 24-hour permits, 24-hour inspections and 1, 5 and 21 day site plan approval, and much more. This will make Phoenix the fastest place for job creation."
“I was honored to co-chair the committee that cut red-tape, streamlined our operations and allowed job creation to occur in days instead of months. Anywhere else it takes months to get a permit. In Phoenix you walk in with your plans and walk out with a permit. Electronic plan review allows you to do it all online. Video conferencing will take the process one step further. In this global economy you have to be better, faster and smarter than your competitor.”
