To engage both a larger audience and involve members of the public more deeply in the planning process, NCPC plans to develop an online platform that allows the public to directly suggest changes to the text of the agency’s plans in draft form. This collaborative platform will be modeled on other successful examples of online collaborative planning from around the world, including Melbourne, Australia’s Future Melbourne 2020 and the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) Bicycle and Pedestrian Wiki. The platform will allow visitors to the site to register and contribute their feedback on the plan – either through comments, contributed media, or direct changes to the text. The platform also will allow NCPC planners and the public to view the evolution of the plan as it moves through revisions.
