Municipal Green Space Management
Cocoriko, a simple and efficient online collaborative space
An online participation platform helps you to:
- To join the silent majority while leaving a place for those who speak out regularly;
- Quickly set up a consultation that will effectively reach more people in your community;
- Collect clear data that you can quickly present to your decision makers;
- Improve the transparency of communications with notices visible to all during the consultation and a presentation of the results at the end of the consultation.
The green space managers used Cocoriko and proved that an online platform is useful in a participatory process.
3 inspiring examples
We present two cities and one MRC that have used Cocoriko in the planning and management of municipal green spaces. One of their objectives was the same: to increase the number of people participating. In all cases, the objective was achieved.
The City of Gatineau needed to review the development of 5 important parks and they collected the opinion of their community with a mix of questions and proposals on an online platform.
Green Space Master Plan
Through its consultation process, the City was able to propose initiatives and concepts to make the Master Plan more accessible to its community.
The regional plan for natural environments is an obligation of the MRCs and the online platform has made it possible to prioritize the actions to be implemented on the territory for the conservation of environments.
