We're on a mission to make state and local government more responsive to the needs of people

PublicInput.com was founded in 2014 by a group of transportation engineers and planners. After seeing first-hand the problems of the public engagement status-quo, they set out to build a community engagement toolkit that could reach more voices and make it easier to understand the needs of communities.

We believe that when public engagement is less costly, less painful, and more representative of community needs, it becomes a powerful tool for creating better policy. How is this possible? By pairing innovative software with a process that encourages public involvement every step of the way.

Who we are

We're a team of planners, engineers, communicators, geeks, and artists focused on building a better interface for people and local government.
