Community discussion website launched

Petersburg Borough has launched a new comprehensive community engagement website (http://petersburgborough.mindmixer.com), developed by MindMixer, where citizens can engage, communicate and collaborate with community decision makers and other residents on the future of our community.

The goal is to get the community involved in the upcoming planning process. Along the way, this will be used as an online tool to generate new ideas and feedback from citizens using this interactive and accessible new platform.

Feedback from the engagement website will be used by the Borough in order to lay out plans on a variety of projects, including the update of the Borough-wide comprehensive plan and the Harbor Development Plan.

This process gives contributors a chance to share new ideas, second others’ ideas, expand upon existing ideas and give feedback on initiatives, working with community leaders on a variety of topics online anytime, anywhere.

The site also measures and tracks participation, identifying the most interested citizens and most compelling topics. MindMixer’s tools make it easy for administrations to communicate back with citizens, and they deliver measurable results and invaluable insights for the planning process.
