The SDL Portal is a cloud-based web application that allows your town officials, employees and citizens to gain access to town data when and where they need it. Real-time syncing with the SDL Municipal Management Software platform allows for up-to-date data for all users, whether in the office or from the comfort of home. Highly configurable, users can set up the online portal to give access when, where and how they need it to be.

Property Information

The property page includes everything from basic tax lot and owner information to detailed data regarding current permits, complaints, violations, licenses and certificates. Current SDL Desktop user permissions automatically unlock sections for authorized users and town portal administrators have the ability to configure over 50 property items for public access.

  • Summary Department information about a property on one page
  • Links to detailed information
  • Detailed permit history


The portal search feature allows users to locate properties or permits, even when they have limited information available. Users can search by full or partial address, full or partial owner name, or block/lot for properties and permits. Users are also able to perform searches using more specific information, such as a permit or control number. This same search functionality is featured throughout the portal, helping users to quickly and accurately fill out web requests or locate information on one of the maps.
