IAP2 USA (Emerging) L.A. Chapter: Civic Engagement in Manhattan Beach

How Manhattan Beach Made Civic Engagement Work – Online and In Real Life

The City of Manhattan Beach has worked through several civic engagement initiatives over the years in an effort to reach a broad audience of participants. From the Open City Hall feature which has garnered over 3,000 online interactions, to more traditional opportunities to contribute, such as town hall meetings and service on committees and boards, the City of Manhattan Beach is actively seeking involvement and input from the community on a broad range of issues.

Our gathering in September will be hosted and presented by staff of the City of Manhattan Beach who are implementing public engagement skills and tools to fulfill the City’s first pillar in their Strategic Plan: Strong Governance that Values Meaningful Resident Engagement.

Five speakers will highlight the City’s successes engaging the public through the popular citizen-based Environmental Task Force and the City’s exploration into digital civic engagement, as well as the challenges faced when trying to reach a broader audience on large citywide initiatives such as the Downtown Specific Plan and the operating budget.
