The City of Tulsa announced the launch of FeedBack, an extension of the broad-based citizen engagement process of PLANiTULSA.

Through PLANiTULSA thousands of Tulsans expressed their views and preferences to update the City’s Comprehensive Plan in 2010.

The new online forum is designed to give citizens a different way to participate in matters of local interest. This forum was created for the City of Tulsa’s Planning & Economic Development Department by Peak Democracy, a non-partisan company whose mission is to broaden civic engagement.

The forum’s first question - intended to generate early interest and participation – asks residents, “What are your favorite things – places, activities, events – in Tulsa?” Comments are posted online and some results will be featured on city social media sites.

Future questions on FeedBack will deal with active local issues related to public policy, planning and land use, and other topics typically addressed through in-person public meetings. Feedback will be used by City leadership to measure the interest in a topic or support for a project or program.

"We want to provide Tulsans with multiple and innovative ways to communicate with their city government. Many residents are online, and that’s where the City of Tulsa needs to be in order to reach them,” says Mayor Dewey Bartlett. "FeedBack is a convenient way to empower more residents to participate in local discussions.”

The FeedBack forum will complement traditional methods of civic engagement – e-mail, social media, websites, printed materials, public meetings and workshops – by allowing citizens to participate electronically.

To share your favorite things about Tulsa, and see what your neighbors have to say, visit www.FeedBackTulsa.org or text ‘subscribe’ to (918) 221-3980.
