PlanningPress is a web toolkit for inclusive, responsive, authentic citizen engagement in transportation planning. The web has opened up new modes of communication between governments and the public, introduced new possibilities for collaborative work, and made dynamic data visualization and analysis possible.
PlanningPress makes it straightforward to apply these opportunities to community transportation planning. Everyone involved can review and engage in dialog on ideas and proposals, using maps and a user-friendly interface.
Intended for use by transportation agencies or community groups, PlanningPress complements and extends the reach of an existing planning process. It enables regular, non-technical team members to publish updates. The simple content management system is built on WordPress, a widely-used publishing platform.
