Vancouver launches new online community engagement tool

Its primary objective is to provide an additional, convenient way for people to learn about and get involved with the work the city does

VANCOUVER — In an effort to provide more opportunities for residents to get involved with city projects, plans and initiatives, the city of Vancouver has launched a new online community engagement tool called Be Heard Vancouver.

Be Heard Vancouver does not replace existing face-to-face engagement opportunities, like Vancouver City Council meetings and public open houses. Its primary objective is to provide an additional, convenient way for people to learn about and get involved with the work the city does, on their own time and from almost anywhere.

The Be Heard Vancouver site, www.BeHeardVancouver.org, serves as a single, central community engagement hub for the city, where you can:

  • Learn about City projects, plans and initiatives that are currently seeking public input
  • Submit feedback and ideas
  • Fill out online surveys & polls
  • View and engage with other people’s feedback
  • Ask questions

Its primary objective is to provide an additional, convenient way for people to learn about and get involved with the work the city does, on their own time and from almost anywhere.

The projects, plans and initiatives on the Be Heard Vancouver site will be updated regularly as new projects get started. Currently, the city is seeking community input on four projects:

  • A Stronger Vancouver (survey closes Sept. 15)
  • Westside Bike Mobility Project
  • Vancouver’s new Public Art Plan
  • Main Street Appearance Project

Questions about Be Heard Vancouver can be sent to beheard@cityofvancouver.us.
