AI-Powered Site Plan Review
The City of Altamonte Springs is launching a partnership with AutoReview.AI to perform AI-powered, automated site plan reviews for development plans and landscaping plans. Altamonte Springs is the first city in Florida to implement an automated review of site and landscape plans. The partnership will be a part of the Altamonte Global Innovation Lab, or AGīL (pronounced “agile”), deploying the software through the City’s development review process.
Using a highly-advanced artificial intelligence architecture, AutoReview.AI’s automated review software will allow the City to perform site and landscape plan reviews more quickly and efficiently. The implementation of this software will increase staff productivity, reduce turnaround time for comments and create savings for taxpayers and developers.
“Altamonte Springs remains on the cutting edge, and we will continue to look for private sector partners who can help us deliver better and more efficient services to our community. We have a long history of partnerships that create benefits for taxpayers and private-sector investors. AutoReview.AI brings a focused, purpose-driven approach to our partnership, which aligns with the City’s business-like philosophy,” said City Manager Frank Martz. “We are particularly excited that AutoReview.AI is a Florida-based company. Deploying home-grown innovation at the City of Altamonte Springs allows other Florida cities and counties to conveniently visit our City to learn more about AutoReview.AI’s solutions first-hand.”
“AutoReview.AI is thrilled to partner with the City of Altamonte Springs and implement our award-winning AI-powered site plan and landscape plan review system into their operations. Together, we are harnessing the power of innovation and technology to revolutionize the construction industry and enhance the efficiency of development processes. This remarkable achievement stands as a testament to the spirit of collaboration that thrives in the City of Altamonte Springs, with their forward-thinking City Manager Frank Martz leading the charge. We look forward to continuing our collaborative efforts to drive monumental change in the realm of construction technology. We also want to express our immense gratitude to the University of Florida School of Design, Construction, and Planning and the City of Gainesville for their invaluable support in bringing our vision to fruition.
Embracing innovation not only benefits local communities but also sets a compelling example for the entire state and beyond. We invite municipalities across Florida and the nation to explore the possibilities that AI and automation offer in reshaping the future of construction, improving public safety and community well-being. Together, we can pave the way for a more efficient and technologically-advanced approach to development and urban planning,” said Rob Christy, CEO of AutoReview.AI.
Part of the City’s mission through the Altamonte Global Innovation Lab is to showcase emerging technologies and programs that can be shared with cities and counties around the United States. In July 2023, Altamonte Springs and the Florida Department of Transportation launched the first mixed-traffic, multi-year autonomous vehicle shuttle in Florida called CraneRIDES, which will connect SunRail to the center of Altamonte Springs while serving the businesses in between. Beep, also a Florida-based transit innovator, operates CraneRIDES. AutoReview.AI and CraneRIDES are just two examples of innovation solutions that the City is piloting and are among nearly a dozen more partnerships the City has completed or are ongoing with the State of Florida and that will be featured through AGīL.
