WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- More than 100 White Plains residents who were expecting to offer input on what should be developed in the area around the TransCenter found themselves instead learning about the high-tech world of business, even government business, of today, according to lohud.com.
A special meeting on Thursday was the first chance for residents to share their ideas, but instead, they were told about a more efficient way of gathering data, using technology and social media by city officials. The mayor said instead of people waiting for hours to offer their input, all they need to do is log in to the city's website and take a survey -- www.pollev.com/wptod125 -- or access the city's main site for updates and information: www.wptransitdistrict.com , said lohud.com.
And while some were a little flustered with technology, most attending thought it was a good way of conducting business. The next public meetings to discuss the plans will be on June 15 and Sept. 20, added lohud.com.
