It facilitates informed decision-making with an easy-to-use interface including an address search. I’m excited to see how our residents use the tool and am eager to hear feedback that we can use to guide our efforts in future projects.”

Residents are able to search by address or by clicking properties on the map to find detailed history about active and previous code violations.

“I’d like to congratulate Adele Edwards and Jacob Pitsch for their work implementing Tolemi.
