In the Accela system temporary parcels can be created by ePermitting staff or by the Agency directly, and can then be used for work being done where a permanent or numbered parcel is not applicable. Some examples of this, is for work being done in the Right-of-way, Code Enforcement cases where no parcel would apply such as transient, illegal camping, graffiti, etc, or the parcel is simply unknown at the time of application intake. A temp parcel could also be used to flag a record for tracking purposes of ‘assets’ such as bridges, statues/fountains, fire hydrants, bus stops, parklets, etc. More than one temporary parcel can be applied to a single record, i.e. a complaint included both Graffiti and Transient, both temp parcels could be associated. Using temp parcels gives agencies the ability to search by the temp parcel name and see a list of all records that are associated to said parcel – Reference Data: Parcel > Associated Record List.
It’s helpful to consider the purpose/use of the temp parcels created prior to creating them, so they can be named in a meaningful way, i.e. creating one temp parcel called ROW versus creating 3 temp parcels called ROW – UTILITIES, ROW – CONSTRUCTION, ROW – EVENT, etc., an agency could quickly and easily see how many records were in the differing types of right-of-way versus having to go thru a long list of all records associated to just a generically named temp parcel like ROW.
