Community engagement in planning & transportation

City Planners and Transportation Specialists around the world are getting more people involved in planning projects, city development and transportation expansion through online engagement. Bringing the conversation online, Planners can receive input from a broader group directly affected by their projects with a more complete sampling of public opinion. By empowering residents with an easy and secure way to participate online, organisations build community capacity and improve democracy as a whole.

“…these days 50% of adults will never attend a meeting… So, I think, engaging people online and finding them in that online space is key to the success of most of our projects.”
– Sandrine Thibeault, Town Planning and Urban Design Collaborative, Canada
