19 Oct New Better Reykjavík opens in collaboration with the City of Reykjavík
Today the Citizens Foundation opened a new and improved version of Better Reykjavík in collaboration with the City of Reykjavík, the capital of Iceland. The collaboration ensures that the priorities which the citizens deem most important will automatically be processed by the cities specialty councils. The City of Reykjavík sees this as a future project but not an experimental one but the website itself is of course under constant development.
The website has been greatly improved and its interface simplified. As the priorities from the original website were added originally under each parties area and after that as part of the coalition talks between the Social Democrats and the Best Party it was decided to start with a clean slate and to remove the old priorities and users. All older priorities are however accessible on Gömlu Betri Reykjavík.
It is our hope that the citizens of Reykjavík use this opportunity to have an influence on the cities administration and thereby ensure the usefulness of the website for all citizens of Reykjavík.
