What others think

"Prior to launching the PlaceSpeak topic, we had only heard from people who felt strongly on either side. PlaceSpeak allowed us to request input from the broader community. It was nice to see residents taking the middle ground, not only extreme positions. We had many passionate residents on both sides of the issue, but the challenge is always to get feedback from people who may not come to a meeting to give public testimony, but want to be heard.”

- Alexandra Pierce

Project Manager, City and Borough of Juneau
