The City of New Port Richey wanted to verify their GIS Zoning Database for accuracy and consistency. Knowing well the far-reaching effect of this data on existing uses, proposed development and tax areas, New Port Richey turned to Genesis for assistance because of our in-house Planning and GIS expertise.

After setting up a carefully crafted data structure to integrate the findings with the City's data, Genesis started by reviewing the over 250 zoning related ordinances recorded by the City since 1972. For each ordinance, Genesis identified the parcel via it's legal description and recorded the parcel number, ordinance number, ordinance date, and decreed zoning in a database. This resulted in the identification of over 1,600 unique parcels (approx. 20% of the City's parcels), of which more than a third had been referred to by multiple ordinances.

Utilizing the database we had designed, Genesis was able then to cross-reference the parcels with the ordinances chronologically and analyze the results for differences with the current Zoning and the Land Use Plan. Genesis, working with the City's legal staff, developed a recommended approach to resolving the differences. Finally, Genesis provided the city with a new Parcel/Zoning GIS database design which now allows for zoning ordinance changes to be recorded more easily and also provides an ordinance history for each parcel.
