Groton launches online community engagement platform
29 Nov 2021
Groton has a new tool to go beyond the traditional public meeting.
The town started a new website, greatergroton.com, as a community engagement platform for town staff to post topics and projects and hear feedback from people who live, work or visit Groton.
People can register for the website and then log in to make comments, complete polls and surveys, and suggest ideas, said Sam Eisenbeiser, economic development specialist for the Town of Groton.
"This platform is designed to complement every other avenue of public input/feedback that we currently have," Eisenbeiser said. "It's not designed to replace anything but we do feel like it offers a very convenient way for folks to keep up to date with projects in town and give us feedback when it's more convenient for them."
