The Town of Purcellville has debuted two new online tools to promote community dialogue.
Using the Polco system, the town can quickly and easily poll residents on issues facing the town, receiving real-time feedback. Voting requires only a one-time user registration. Responses are tallied both in the aggregate and broken into in-town resident/ and out-of-town responder categories.
The first question seeks input on a potential “brand” for Purcellville that would be promoted using car stickers and magnets. The second seeks to gauge interest in developing a “pump track” for cyclists.
The Community Voice “brainstorming” portal also allows residents to create and discuss various ideas important for them, as well as provides a platform for town leaders to post ideas for feedback.
