Open Town Hall


Open Town Hall is an online forum for civic engagement. You are invited to read what others are saying about important Palo Alto topics, then post your own statement. The comments will be available to city officials making decisions on these topics.

When you post your first statement, you will be asked for your name and home address. This confidential information is only used to identify statements from residents in and near Palo Alto - so that users know which statements are from local residents.

Open Town Hall is run by OpenGov, a non-partisan company whose mission is to broaden civic engagement and build public trust in government. We will keep your information confidential per our strict privacy policy.

As with any public comment process, participation in Open Town Hall is voluntary; comments from this Open Town Hall forum will be available for city officials to consider.

Thanks for participating!
