From the about page:
We started as a city planner, building technologist, and most importantly, as neighborhood residents. We saw first hand that the future of cities’ development faced two big hurdles.
First, most community members don’t have time to go to public meetings, but the future of our neighborhoods are decided at the meetings – what gets built and ultimately, for whom.
Second, the facts about projects are very difficult to understand, especially traffic studies and engineering reports. We wanted to transform the process to make it easy for more residents to learn about projects and understand the impact on their street.
At coUrbanize, our goal is to make project information accessible and help residents more easily participate in the development process so that everyone’s voice can be heard.
