What's the big idea?
We're changing the culture of information sharing by local gov, giving everyone actionable information about projects near them. We're making it easier for planners to share information, and easier for communities to discover information and act on it. Because our tools are online, it's easy to get started, and we keep making improvements.
We want to see a big change in communication in planning. Our goal is genuine, two-way constructive conversation between planners and the communities they serve. Getting beyond the usual suspects, we want to see greater engagement from a more diverse population. Eventually, nobody should wonder what's going on or feel like they're missing from discussions.
OpenPlans is open source. We hope you'll work with us for our excellent support, reliable hosting and deep knowledge of tools for planning. But if you decide to go DIY, our code is available. Every project we do leads to improvements in the core OpenPlans software.
