Until now, public participation in major civic projects has been limited to the few. Public stakeholder meetings are notoriously under-attended and not representative of the diversity of our communities. For one, these meetings often take place in the middle of the work day at a physical location. As a result, critical information and decisions are being dominated by a small, homogenous group of post-worklife Americans. This isn’t ideal for anyone, doesn’t sound like a very good way to build a growth-oriented future because it isn’t.
Instant Input’s mission is to enhance the fabric of our communities. We are doing this by offering a public engagement tool that lowers the barriers to public participation. Now everyone of any background and circumstance has equal access to information and decisions that shape our shared future.
