Funny you should mention that. I attended a presentation given by our Planning director this past Wednesday, and she referenced several ideas that originated from public comments off of this site. She also commented on the benefits of public interaction through this medium as an alternative to public hearings at City Hall. I am part of the "rank and file" in city gov't, and I can assure you every comment and idea submitted is given serious thought and consideration.
I'll second David's comment. There are so many ideas - good ideas - that show up here, we can't always respond to them all. Rest assured, however, you're being heard.
Related, the City is preparing to embark on a Comprehensive Planning process, kicking off this fall and running through 2014. Many of these ideas will be a part of the baseline for discussion going forward. We want people to share their visions, to go ahead and dream!
Great job, great public engagement platform!!!
We are listening! These comments are monitored by our departments and discussed at meetings. Mayor Battle monitors as well, and your thoughts and ideas help guide us in our planning. Your postings have been thoughtful and informative, and we appreciate the time you take in articulating smart ideas.
In the near future, we will be ramping up Imagine Huntsville to assist with our city-wide comprehensive master planning process. Stay tuned -- we need your input!
What are the dates and venues on this?
Maybe a future campaign for Imagine Huntsville might be ideas for better citizen engagement. This site is of course the exception (that proves the rule?); which is why I mention it here. What are some good channels for better citizen/government two way conversation?
