In an effort to increase engagement and participation in city government, the League City Communications and Engagement Department has launched a new digital platform that allows citizens to provide feedback, suggestions, and ideas on city projects, initiatives, and long-term planning. The interactive online tool is available 24/7 and is called League City Listens. To access the platform, go directly to www.leaguecitylistens.com or click on the “Engage With Us” icon on the homepage of the city’s main website.
“With over 40 percent of League City yet to be developed and with a population expected to double in the next 20 to 30 years, we need the feedback and input of all our city’s stakeholders to ensure we are meeting the needs of our community now and in the future,” said Community Engagement Manager Amber Pedigo.
League City Listens provides citizens a mechanism—regardless of their schedule or location—to share their feedback, ideas, and comments using a variety of interactive tools including surveys, dropping a pin on a map, uploading photos, and much more. In addition, users will also be able to ask questions and provide comments directly to the staff member in charge of a project or initiative.
“We know our residents are extremely busy and many of them commute out of the city for work, so they are unable to attend council meetings, public forums, and other in-person events,” said Pedigo. “We believe this platform will allow us to reach a wider audience, so we can ensure that a diverse range of voices is heard and that we are planning projects that reflect the needs of our residents.”
