A collection of properties to be notified can be generated by specifying a distance from a property boundary (buffer); selecting properties along an adjoining roadway; identifying properties within an administrative area; or drawing a specific area and identifying properties within the newly drawn area.
The responsibility for distributing public notices varies by local government. In some cases, the petitioner or applicant may be responsible for distributing the notices. In others, the local government itself will distribute the notices to surrounding property owners. In either case, Public Notification creates a list of property owners or occupants to be notified and an accompanying map that illustrates who was notified.
Public Notification requires specific technical experience and software.
