Our certified professionals use proven methods refined through years of experience to bring holistic community development services with minimal risk and far-reaching rewards.

IBTS provides community development services using proven and successful procedures from past experience. These processes are carried out by our certified staff, experienced in using our development of comprehensive plan and code updates for cities. Our proven methods minimize risk to city stakeholders, resulting in a collaborative working relationship between the IBTS team and the community. IBTS stays up-to-date on emerging trends in contemporary planning concepts, housing studies, and downtown comprehensive plans of small and mid-sized communities throughout the nation, ensuring your community is provided with the latest approaches to community development.

As part of IBTS’s community development services, we developed the GOVmotus software solution. This innovative software solution helps manage, automate, and track the building department process. With GOVmotus, the permitting process is centralized, sequential and automated – the software eliminates the need for contractors to apply for building permits at City Hall, saving time for both the city and the contractor.
