Residents can use online mapping tool to comment on city planning
The Imagine Boston 2030 team has turned to Cambridge tech startup coUrbanize to provide a digital mapping tool to broaden the ways residents can share ideas on city planning. With the tool, residents can respond online to questions posted by Imagine Boston, such as “Where are there opportunities to enhance and grow Boston?” through placing virtual pins on map locations with their feedback attached.
Residents sign up with their real names. Comments include requests for more storm drains at an intersection that the commenter said often floods, better transit access to Roxbury’s Bolling Building, public art to improve the appearance of certain underpasses, improvements to the lighting and amenities at a park and safer bike ways.
The Imagine Boston team will organize comments and questions and draft a strategic plan.
