Renton, WA –The City of Renton received the award for Best Online Interactive Map application at the Washington Chapter of Urban and Regional Systems Association (WAURISA) annual conference. The City of Renton Maps (COR Maps) application is a web-based system that lets you have Renton at your fingertips. COR Maps pulls together a variety of resources, and puts it into maps you can view, save or print. It’s not just an average road map. There are dozens of features you can turn on and off with a click of a button.

“This recognition is well deserved,” said Mayor Denis Law. “It showcases the hard work and dedication of city staff to provide another method of customer service to the community.”

COR Maps doesn’t just offer street names and intersections. Through COR Maps you can view school locations in or near their neighborhood or the closest fire station, hospital or medical services. It also includes the location of community centers, bike routes and trails, and parks. You can research property values, property lines, land use, regulated shorelines and where streams and rivers are located. Other useful information such as transportation, jurisdictional boundaries and information about many of the city’s services can also be found using COR Maps.

Need zoning, sewer or street information for building or renovating? Trying to remember where that great looking park was located? Have an appointment and want to find the right place and the best transportation route? COR Maps can help.

COR Maps is a new way for the city to communicate with citizens and regional customers providing details on Renton’s neighborhoods, amenities, services and events. The system includes a video tutorial that can help you get started. Visit rentonwa.gov, type COR Maps in the search engine and then click “launch COR Maps.”  Look for more great features to be added in the future.
