PlaceSpeak Provides Online Public Consultation to TransLink
TransLink—Metro Vancouver’s regional transportation authority—is using PlaceSpeak’s location-based community consultation platform to gather public input on their draft 2013 Base Plan and Outlook. The 2013 Base Plan and Outlook outlines strategic initiatives, transportation programs and services that TransLink will deliver between 2013 and 2015 using existing revenue sources.
From September 20 to October 12, 2012, metro Vancouver residents can use PlaceSpeak to provide feedback on what’s included TransLink’s 2013 Base Plan and Outlook by going to the PlaceSpeak website, register and then click on the connect button to the online consultation.
“PlaceSpeak gives residences the information to learn and share their opinions about the TransLink 2013 Base Plan by completing this engaging online survey questionnaire,” said Colleen Hardwick, President and CEO of PlaceSpeak. “PlaceSpeak also provides effective online public consultation to help participants understand the goals of TransLink and assist in their decision-making process, which will help ensure their base plan can meet the needs of the general public while showing transparency.”
