2014 NACO Award image

The Growth Management Division’s Department of Operations and Regulatory Management received its first National Association of Counties (NACo) Achievement Award for Building Permit Review Standards: Managing Expectations. The NACo Achievement Awards are for counties with innovative programs that modernize county government and increase services to county residents.

The Building Permit Review Standards program was an aggressive initiative to truly cement Naples as a destination location for developers looking to help stabilize the floundering economy, and it worked.

The county established time frames for reviews to be completed and offered a money-back guarantee which is a rare government accountability measure. This drives home the county’s commitment to the success of its clients.

Commissioner Donna Fiala, District 1, was thrilled with the award.

“Receiving the NACo Achievement Award for Building Permit Review Standards: Managing Expectations is especially rewarding to Collier County because in the mid-2000’s we had a long way to go; the building industry was unhappy and so were the developers and business owners,” said Commissioner Fiala. “With dedication, determination and a willingness to go all the way, forming partnerships with the building industry to work together to answer their needs and create an atmosphere that would be advantageous to all, we turned the corner and headed in the right direction. Thanks to all for shining the light on our success!”

President and CEO of The Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce John Cox was also delighted with the award.

“Now other counties are following Collier County’s lead and looking at our growth management for guidance on doing government great. This was truly a collaborate effort among the county, the building industry, and local business leaders to bolster industry activities and to prepare for the return of the local and national building market,” said Cox.

Collier Building Industry Association (CBIA) Executive Vice President Kathy Curatolo said, “Congratulations to the Collier County Growth Management Division’s Department of Operations and Regulatory Management upon receiving this distinguished award. On behalf of CBIA, I applaud your focus on efficiency, team approach and, most importantly, your commitment to customer service.”
