Frequently Asked Questions

the problem

If you've ever held a planning or policy leadership role in the public sector, chances are good that you've asked yourself these questions: 

  • How can we be sure that we're responding quickly and effectively to the real needs and ideas of residents?
  • In our planning processes, how can we include the voices of residents in neighborhoods with long histories of disinvestment
  • How can we expand and deepen our community engagement with a tight budget and scarce resources?

ioby's solution
