When it comes to moving around the city, what do Houstonians’ really want and how do we get there? The Glasshouse Policy guys, who created MobilityATX for Austin last year, have brought their ultra-participatory, crowdsourced policy platform to Houston to gather our thoughts on traffic solutions.
Today marks the launch of MobilityHouston.com, the online portion of our crowdsourced mobility initiative and community policy dialog. We’ll spend the next month building an initial online user base in anticipation of a January 2016 public launch of the initiative. Then, coupled with the conversation taking place on the online platform, we’ll host community conversations and town halls all over the city to solicit in-person feedback.
Here’s what you need to know about MobilityHouston:
MobilityHouston is a community-wide engagement initiative to ensure all Houstonians have a voice in developing a more connected, livable city.
MobilityHouston is an online and in-person platform for all Houstonians to explore discrete topics which impact Houston mobility and propose their solutions to Houston’s transportation issues.
After months of online conversation, in-person meetings and town halls, MobilityHouston will conclude with the presentation of citizen-sourced policy solutions for community, stakeholder, and City Council consideration.
MobilityHouston.com launches today, December 7th! In-person conversations, town halls and events will take place throughout 2016, starting in late January.
Don’t forget to RSVP for the Civic Hack Night - Transit Edition we’re co-hosting on Wednesday, December 9th with Mayor Pro-Tem Ed Gonzalez, January Advisors and others.
MobilityHouston is a collaborative effort between a growing list of public and private partners, including Glasshouse Policy, RideScout, the League of Women Voters, Bike Houston, the Hobby Center for Public Policy and more.
