PlaceSpeak

Feedback from citizens is vital as part of the decision-making process. From land development and transportation infrastructure to parks, recreation and budgets, decision-makers need to hear from the residents whose day-to-day lives will be affected. Unfortunately, traditional online polls, surveys and social media tend to be anonymous and untargeted.

PlaceSpeak is a pioneering location-based citizen engagement platform that facilitates high-quality, defensible public input processes. Designed to interact and consult with residents in specific geographical or jurisdictional boundaries, PlaceSpeak’s unique geo-verification technology connects participants’ digital identity to their physical location (i.e. address). This ensures that the feedback collected is relevant for evidence-based decision-making.

Deployment is quick and PlaceSpeak’s user-friendly interface makes it easy for citizens to participate. This enables cities and organizations to tap into the knowledge and experience of thousands of civically engaged local residents. Existing users are automatically notified of new consultations in their community based on their interests, making democracy habit-forming by connecting people with one another and the places where they live, work and play.

Improve local decision-making and citizen engagement processes with real, authentic, and targeted feedback with PlaceSpeak.
