Online Interactive Construction Map
Earlier this year we surveyed residents, city staff, and elected officials: what type of communication is important to you? The top answer across all three groups was enhancing our construction communication. It is common for people to contact us through any channel and through any department to ask what type of construction work is happening. Perhaps they see work happening on their block or during their commute and want to know what is happening, how long it will list, and who to contact about the construction.
To respond to this feedback, we wanted to empower our residents and city staff with information about active construction happening in Wauwatosa. Our GIS Manager created a custom online interactive map in which people can see construction by the City of Wauwatosa, construction by other organizations such as We Energies, and projects under consideration which highlights work we anticipate in the near future.
This additional approach to construction communication increases our efficiency of answering questions and demonstrates all of the work being completed across the city.
