Session Description:

April 28, 2014
4:00 to 5:00 p.m. ET

Technology is changing the way planning is conducted and open government is reshaping community engagement. Citizens now can access extensive information online and make use of government data, application processes, review procedures, and project commenting. Learn how this affects the planning commission’s role as the interface between government and the public. The program also will look at the developing concept of participatory budgeting.

Cosponsored by the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy.
