New Online Tool for Public Participation

City launches online public engagement platform
Posted on 02/18/2021

At a time when in-person meetings are still limited due to COVID-19, the city of Aurora is launching an online tool, Engage Aurora, as an additional way for members of the community to participate and offer feedback on city projects and programs.

The new platform, available at EngageAurora.org, will include city projects, studies, construction updates and other programs or activities that include a public-input process. The tool is easy to use, and it offers different ways for conversations among participants and with city staff.

“Public input is a very important part of decision-making here, and providing a venue for meaningful conversations takes that public participation to the next level,” said City Manager Jim Twombly. “We want to make sure residents can provide feedback in the way that is most comfortable and convenient to them. Engage Aurora will serve as one vital tool in that process.”

Engage Aurora will be used by all city departments for a host of projects and programs, from emergency preparedness, water construction and recreation projects to mobility studies such as the Havana Street Corridor Study and visioning projects like the City Center study.
The last two are already available for the public to review and provide opinion.

Engage Aurora will not replace traditional outreach and public engagement but rather add opportunities for public participation.

The engagement tool is provided by Boulder-based software company Bang the Table.
