The City of Edina recently launched the first part of its new website. If you haven’t already seen it, please check it out at www.EdinaMN.gov.
In the header and footer on most pages, you will find “Speak Up” links. These links go to our new civic engagement site, www.SpeakUpEdina.org. We are using a platform for civic engagement originally developed by I Can Make It Better and first used in the City of Austin, Texas. On our new civic engagement site, users can post an idea, weigh in on ideas they like or join a discussion about a topic City staff or others post. We’ve set up a few discussions to start the conversation. You’ve been a great participant here on the Edina Citizen Engagement site and I hope you’ll consider visiting www.SpeakUpEdina.org and posting an idea or responding to a discussion board that we’ve set up.
Our Edina Citizen Engagement site will remain in place for a few more weeks. Then, those who use the www.edinacitizenengagement.org URL will be redirected to www.SpeakUpEdina.org. The City is very thankful to Griff Wigley for moderating the original Edina Citizen Engagement site and I’m sure he won’t be a stranger in our future online engagement efforts!
Please contact me or any member of the Communications & Technology Services Department if you have any questions. We can be reached at 952-826-0359.
