The web tool asks users to submit project ideas for their neighborhoods or the city — think ‘plant more trees in Brewerytown’ or ‘convert a portion of the Reading Vidauct to an elevated park’– and to connect and collaborate on suggestions from others. The concept is that city officials and other decision makers would monitor the site to garner insight about what projects have community buy-in. Short of official support, residents can organize and act on their own.
What ideas will you submit? How can this project be improved in future versions? Do you think any real action will come out of this?-30-
