The City of Lebanon is committed to enhancing our service delivery and streamlining our processes. In our continued effort to improve efficiency and accuracy in the building permit review process, we are pleased to announce the implementation of a new AI-based tool, AutoReview.ai.The following page explains what this tool is and how it is used in our site plan and development review process.
Frequently Asked Questions
AutoReview.ai is an advanced AI tool designed to assist our staff in reviewing building permit applications. It utilizes sophisticated algorithms to analyze site plans, ensuring compliance with our city's building codes and regulations.
At the City of Lebanon, we are committed not only to implementing innovative solutions but also to ensuring our community understands how these technologies work. Here's a brief overview of how AutoReview.ai will function in our building permit review process:
Step 1: Submission of Site Plans
Once we receive your building permit application, the accompanying site plans are uploaded to AutoReview.ai through a secure portal. This portal has been carefully developed, respecting privacy and data security norms.
Step 2: AI-Powered Review
AutoReview.ai is a tool specifically trained on the City of Lebanon's building regulations and codes. Upon receiving the site plans, it analyzes them for compliance. Using its advanced algorithms, it scrutinizes every detail against our city's standards.
Step 3: Identification of Compliance Issues
If any part of the site plan does not comply with our regulations, AutoReview.ai marks these areas. It's not just about identifying issues; it's about precision and detail, ensuring that nothing is missed.
Step 4: Detailed Reporting
Following its review, AutoReview.ai generates a comprehensive report in Microsoft Word format. This report includes all findings and annotations made by the AI system.
Step 5: Human Review and Oversight
This is a crucial step. Our experienced city staff thoroughly reviews the AI-generated report along with the site plans. They validate the findings and make any necessary adjustments. This human oversight ensures that while the process benefits from the speed and consistency of AI, it retains the irreplaceable value of human judgment and expertise.
Step 6: Communication with Applicants
Once our staff completes the full review, we communicate the results back to you, the applicant. This step ensures that you are kept in the loop and are aware of the status of your application.
By integrating AutoReview.ai into our permit review process, we aim to achieve:
- Speed and Efficiency: The AI's rapid analysis speeds up the initial review, leading to faster turnaround times for your applications.
- Consistency and Accuracy: With AI assistance, we minimize human error, ensuring a more uniform, fair, and thorough review process.
- Human Touch: Despite the technological aid, our process remains grounded in human expertise and decision-making.
We believe this blend of AI and human oversight will transform our service delivery, making it more efficient, reliable, and transparent. Your understanding of this process is vital to us, and we hope this explanation provides clarity on how we are leveraging technology for better community service.
