Berkeley Considers


Berkeley Considers is an online forum for civic engagement. Read what others are saying about important Berkeley topics, then post your own statement. Comments will be submitted to City officials as part of their decision process.

Berkeley Considers is run by OpenGov, a non-partisan company whose mission is to broaden civic engagement and build public trust in government. 

When you post your first statement, you will be asked for your name and home address. This confidential information is used only by OpenGov to identify statements from residents in and near Berkeley - so that users know which statements are from local residents. They will keep your information confidential, they do not accept advertising, and they will not share contact information, as noted in the company's Privacy Policy. The City of Berkeley does not currently require participants to show their name in order to participate. All Berkeley residents, regardless of immigration status, are welcome to provide feedback

As with any public comment process, participation in Berkeley Considers is voluntary; city officials may consider input from this forum along with all other channels for participation. However you choose to participate, thanks for helping us build a better Berkeley.
