About

Open Town Hall is an online forum for civic engagement. Read what others are saying about important Berkeley topics, then post your own statement.  Elected officials will read the statements and incorporate them into their decision process.

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 Berkeley - so that users know which statements are from local residents.

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

As with any public comment process, participation in Open Town Hall is voluntary; Elected officials will 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.
