Elevating Erie to be Featured on National Webinar

We are excited to share that Sam Gordon, Director of Planning and Zoning for the Town of DeWitt and Owen Kerney, Assistant Director for City Planning for the Syracuse Onondaga County Planning Agency, will be featured on an upcoming webinar titled, "A Recipe for Award-Winning Online Community Engagement" on October 25th 2016. The webinar is hosted by Metroquest (which is the online engagement tool that we utilized for the Elevating Erie online survey platform). In their words, "The webinar will showcase a wide range of outstanding planning projects from the Northeastern US. Our special guests from the City of Syracuse and the Town of Dewitt will join us to talk about the Elevating Erie project, one of the most innovative and successful outreach efforts we’ve ever seen. They will discuss the innovative ways they combined online and targeted face to face community engagement to involve thousands of community members to help inform the process. They will also share advice for agencies seeking to improve the diversity and effectiveness of their community engagement efforts and talk about the positive difference that broad community support is making as they move forward."
