I was wondering if any of you have links to a good Development Handbook put together by a local government. In Alberta, Edmonton and Calgary both have decent examples of handbooks, but they tend to be huge and overly-detailed at times. There are TONS of example out there, so it's not that I can't find any. However, with so many out there, I'm having a lot of difficulty finding good examples.
What I'm looking for is a Handbook that covers the local jurisdiction's planning and development process, and includes photos/illustrations, flow charts and clear, concise language. It seems that many of the examples I have looked at only have written text to explain each application type, with no or few flowcharts.
I will be working on putting together a process and procedures manual for my department in the next several months, which will probably be used to develop a Development Handbook.
