Increasing citizen engagement

Oviedo is a suburb of Orlando, right in the heart of Florida.  A lot has changed over the past twenty years for this sleepy country town. Large development projects have reshaped the city to accommodate the exploding population, in part due to the expansion of the University of Central Florida, now the second largest university in the country.  With that rapid growth comes growing pains, and the people of Oviedo are in need of a better way to engage with their city.

/OviedoCityCouncil enables residents to have an ongoing, location specific conversation with their city’s leaders on a wide variety of topics that range from cracking down on trespassers on private lakes to improving sound ordinances for the community surrounding UCF. Local government and a range of citizens benefit when communication flows freely.  /OviedoCityCouncil is a tool that fosters that community-centric conversation.

We are building the local web and sharing a new way to use it each day.
