OpenPlans is a Knight News Challenge winner

We’re excited and proud to announce that OpenPlans is one of this year’s Knight News Challenge winners!

With support from the Knight Foundation, we’ll be working on Plan In A Box over the next two years. We’ll be bringing better information tools for planning projects to the long tail of municipal government, scaling up what works around outreach and engagement tools to reach many more people. As always, we’ll be building open source software.

We’ll be sharing lots more information soon. In the meantime, please sign up for updates, and save the date for two unconferences about planning information and engagement, PlanningCamp!


We’ll be bringing PlanningCamp to the east coast on September 21st, followed by PlanningCamp West on October 12th. See you there!
