"New Chapel Hill website works on transparency" via DTH. Participate Chapel Hill website needs work.


From the article:

“One thing that Participate does is bring everything under one roof,” she said. 

Actually, that's the pretty much the ONLY thing it does, at least so far. I'd like to be hopeful about this, but I haven't seen any evidence of a shift in organizational culture that would be necesary to truly open up government processes to meaningful public participation.

But I see a little light in the school district acknowledging need to be more transparent in development of next long-range plan.  From board agenda for this coming week -- http://chccs.granicus.com/MetaViewer.php?view_id=2&event_id=8&meta_id=7098Can't solve a prolem unless you admit you have one.
