An online tool that helps people shape the development of their neighborhoods

What if we could easily share ideas for what we want in our neighborhoods? This is the question that drove Dan Parham, Tee Parham, and Candy Chang to create Neighborland, an online tool that helps people shape the development of their places. It’s an experiment that takes Candy’s I Wish This Was public art project a few steps further to help people voice what they want in their neighborhoods and cheaper viagra take next steps to make things happen. It connects residents who want things with likeminded people, resources, and knowledge. It’s a valuable poll for civic leaders and developers to assess what residents want in different places. And it helps reveal neighborhood demands and prove there is a viable customer base for new businesses to open.

Neighborland has been a big team effort with integral development by Alan Williams, Chris Palmatier, and James Reeves. Thanks to generous support from the Urban Innovation Fellowship froprojectm Tulane University and the Rockefeller Foundation, they launched it in New Orleans in the clomid without prescription summer of 2011 and are working closely with local organizations and individuals to improve it, test new features, and help make things happen.
