How We Give InputNovember 28, 2009
One of the questions being polled at the Portland Plan workshops is the preferred way of providing input on public issues.
While it was no surprise that folks indicated that attending a public meeting was the favorite approach (after all, these folks were at a public meeting), I was a bit taken aback that the number two choice was completing an online survey. I have to admit that I’ve always found these a little bit constraining (you can’t very easily color outside the lines).
What do you think about online surveys as a way to gather public input?
