Public Education for Street Overlay Project Using a Story Map
Track: Public Works
Authors: Michelle McCarty, Mary Anne Van Zuyle
The City of Thousand Oaks undertook a City-wide street resurfacing program in 2014. To educate the public on the location, types and time frames of resurfacing, Department of Public Works staff created a story map as a public outreach tool that allowed people to check to see if their street was being resurfaced. Each feature had a link to a webpage that described the various resurfacing processes, how long each took, and what to expect.
