It may be a bit of an oxymoron depending on who you talk to but the Green Building Certifications Organization has produced a new specialized instruction for the parking industry. With a little training you can become a "Parksmart Advisor" and help builders produce more natural and environmentally friendly parking structures. The course is being offered in a variety of cities.
Paperless permiting will certainly be a benefit under the Parksmart options.
