Do you think that the downtown streets in your town could use some work? Do you have an idea? Sometimes the hardest part is being able to explain yourself to others – especially when megabucks are on the line.
I found this cute little city street planning tool this morning that I found super easy to use, and a great way to share ideas and concepts with city government. Streetmix.net allows you to see a profile of your street, from property line on the left to property line on the right. It is a simple tool that isn’t meant to capture all issues, but can be used to get your point across if you see a need in your community.
Take Charge and send an idea into city hall! See our local government list here. At worst you inspire someone, and best you get a medal of honor for upgrading your community. Well, maybe…
What would you change around Akron?
- Does Wadsworth’s Town Square need a new treeline?
- Is Route 303 in Hudson too congested?
- Are sidewalks in neighborhoods surrounding the new Goodyear Headquarters a good idea?
- Does Green need a bus stop or two?
- What about the neighborhoods surrounding new Cuyahoga Falls development?
- What about poor old Krieger’s Fresh Market?
Just keep this tool handy next time you want to go activist!
