CITY OF LIVERMORE
The City of Livermore approached PlaceWorks with an unusual request: could we build a tool that would let users design their own concepts? We did, and the community response was enthusiastic, with teams of citizens trying things out in workshops and at home. This project received coverage on NBC Bay Area News.
SANTA CLARA PARKS
For the Santa Clara County Parks and Recreation Department, we built a site with heavily custom Goolge Maps (including GIS data), demographic tracking of responses to ensure broad geographic and demographic distribution of responses, and a custom design.
COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES
This project, for the Los Angeles County Vote Center Placement Project, involved translation into of the site into 13 languages, high volume, and ESRI mapping technology.
Unlike other platforms, PlaceWorks Civic gives you complete control over the look and functionality of your project site. Choose from the catalog of basic exercises - prioritization, multiple choice, visual preference, map pins, open text, or concept builder - or go for full customizability.
REACH YOUR WHOLE COMMUNITY
Lots of people can't or won't drive to meetings and sit through long public comment sessions. But their input is important, too! PlaceWorks Civic gives them a way to participate, and makes it easy: there's no app to download, and signup is via email only. Project specific demographic questions let you know where more outreach needs to be concentrated.
We built PlaceWorks Civic to be a platform for public comment, not for flame wars. It's simple, reliable, and secure, and avoids compliance and user privacy issues of social media based services.
