Abstract

In 1996, the originators of the Streamlining the Nation's Building Regulatory Process project agreed that proven examples of regulatory streamlining initiatives should be collected from jurisdictions across the country and at all levels of government. These streamlined "models" would cover subject areas throughout the regulatory process, from land use and zoning to issuance of the certificate of occupancy. Once a broad number of models were reviewed and approved by the project's expert review groups, the 54 government agencies and public/private sector organizations that make up the Streamlining project's national partners would actively assist jurisdictions nationwide to adopt and implement the models. This implementation and outreach phase would be crucial to meeting the project's goals of reducing the unnecessary cost and complexity of the building regulatory process. This 1999 Annual Report outlines progress made in the Streamlining project's third year to complete the model program assembly process, and to begin the implementation and outreach phase.
