Instant Input is a platform that project owners such as municipalities and private developers use to share project information and gather feedback from local community members. Instant Input gives residents a voice in the future of their communities.
Instant Input helps with transparency and accountability by making project data accessible on the Internet, facilitating feedback from a diverse cross-section of residents and enabling the tracking of project progress, budgets, decisions and outcomes.
Instant Input is designed to be easily used without any special training. More broadly speaking, the Instant Input blog and YouTube channel offer tips on effective public feedback and activism.
The Instant Input platform is completely free to use for members of the public and includes features such as project owner surveys, commenting and public meeting schedules to facilitate community input.
The Instant Input platform provides a simple framework to educate members of the public about civic participation through the process of engaging in it. Additionally, the Instant Input team continuously develops content and tools in support of civic education and public awareness.
