Our Story

CEO and Founder of yey'zoning

Our journey started when we, a group of GIS professionals and developers discovered that there was a significant problem with the way zoning data was presented online. We found that existing zoning apps were complex, inconsistent, and lacking information. We knew that something needed to be done to make zoning information more accessible and understandable for everyone.


Our frustration came to a head when I encountered a zoning problem of my own. I wanted to simply build a shed in my backyard. I thought the process would be straightforward, but I quickly found out that the zoning regulations in my area were complicated, and the information available online was scattered and confusing. After hours of research and numerous phone calls, I finally managed to understand the zoning regulations and the process I needed to follow to get the permits I needed. I realized that the experience had been challenging and frustrating and that most people would likely give up or hire expensive consultants to navigate the zoning regulations.


That's when we realized that we needed to do something to make the zoning process more accessible for everyone. We wanted to create an application that would provide zoning information that was easy to understand, up-to-date, and presented in a user-friendly way.


To overcome the problems that other zoning apps have, we decided to take a different approach. We started by gathering zoning information from multiple sources, including local governments, open data portals, and other reputable sources. We then organized the information into a structured database, making it easy to search and access. Lastly, we added interactive maps, clear explanations, and helpful tools to make the zoning information more understandable. We also focused on making the app user-friendly and accessible. We worked hard to design a simple and intuitive user interface that would make it easy for anyone to navigate the app and find the information they need. 


We are proud of what we have accomplished with yey'zoning. We believe that our app has the potential to revolutionize the way people access and understand zoning information, making the process more accessible and less frustrating for everyone. Whether you're a homeowner, a business owner, or an urban planner, we believe that yey'zoning can help you navigate the complex world of zoning regulations with ease.
