Plan in a Box
Making it easier to discover information about local planning projects, by creating a tool that governments and contractors can use to easily create websites with updates that also allow public input into the process
Local planning decisions can shape everything about a community - from how residents get around, to how they interact with their neighbors and experience daily life. Yet information on projects - from new plans for downtown centers to bridge replacements - is often difficult to obtain. This project will be an open-source web-publishing tool that makes it easy to engage people in the planning process. With minimal effort, city employees will be able to create and maintain a useful website that provides information that citizens and journalists need while integrating with social media and allowing for public input.
