Watertown officials announced this month that they have launched a website intended to gather public input on drafting the town's comprehensive plan.

The plan will outline the town’s vision for growth over the next 10 to 20 years, and is the first of its kind in Watertown in the past 25 years, officials said.

Now, Watertown has paired up with MindMixer, a startup that helps organizations and local governments gather ideas from their community. The newly-launched feedback website, envisionwatertowncompplan.com, allows residents to contribute new ideas, second or expand on ideas they like, and vote in an instant poll.

Locals can also submit links, maps, photos and videos to make their point when submitting ideas.

The website can also be accessed in different languages (powered by Google) by clicking “Select Language” in the left hand column.

The next scheduled public forum to discuss the plan is slated for Monday, May 20 at the Watertown Middle School, 68 Waverly Ave.

More information on the plan can also be found at vhb.com/watertowncompplan.
