Many city processes are confusing and opaque to members of the public. The City should provide information in an easy-to-read, easily accessible format on the website to explain the different ways the public can interact with the city, as well as explain specific programs and policies. Budget development, city service responsibilities, rezonings – all of these should be explained in a standing section on the City website.
Graphics and animations should be used to convey complicated information, such as the development process, and tap into the wealth of artistic and design talent in Vancouver to collaborate on new ways to convey basic civic information to people who want it.
