Burbank residents turn to Internet to voice ideas on master plan

Residents who have not been able to attend meetings to share ideas on Burbank long-range planning guide have instead turned to the Internet to be heard, officials say.

The online site for the Burbank 2035 master plan, burbanktownhall.com, has generated at least 2,050 visitors since it launched June 20, said Tracy Streinkruger, a senior planner in the city’s planning and transportation division.

“We have 115 registered users, and I expect many other persons have, at least, viewed the site but opted not to participate,” she said.

The average time visitors spend on the site is 6 minutes, 9 seconds, she added.

 At least 110 ideas have been submitted, which have garnered more than 280 comments, Streinkruger said.

“Quite a contrast from those two persons or five persons who have showed up at our community meetings,” she said.
