City testing new project website
From The Province May 24, 2011
Vancouver is testing a new, online way to connect residents with projects in their neighbourhoods. Anyone logging into PlaceSpeak.com can express ideas about city issues, but only residents can vote.
A neighbourhood emblem contest, Tag Your Hood, that began on Monday, invites the public to come up with symbols for each of Vancouver’s 26 neighbourhoods.
The emblems will be used on the city’s website and at PlaceSpeak. Entrants who submit winning designs are being invited to meet Mayor Gregor Robertson as part of the city’s 125th birthday celebrations. The contest closes June 24, 2011.© Copyright (c) The Province
