Birmingham Launches Online Platform for Community Engagement

(City of Birmingham, May 2, 2021)

The City of Birmingham has launched Engage Birmingham, a new online engagement platform as part of an ongoing effort to encourage public input. The platform, accessible at, features a variety of tools including discussion forums, polls, idea boards and surveys.

Engage Birmingham offers residents, community members and stakeholders a convenient way to participate in the municipal decision-making process. The City of Birmingham will use the new platform to share information and plans, answer questions and gather feedback on many of its projects and initiatives.

Powered by global industry-leader Bang the Table’s Engagement HQ software, Engage Birmingham is an interactive, user-friendly site that provides users an easy way to participate – when and where they choose.

“Collaboration with the community is an important piece of our decision-making process and we are proud to offer Engage Birmingham as another tool to engage the public,” said Melissa Fairbairn, Assistant to the City Manager.

The community is encouraged to visit to register and view engagement opportunities. Once registered, visitors can participate in a survey regarding how they currently engage with the City of Birmingham as well as provide input on two projects: Naming the City Newsletter and Pickleball Court Locations. The platform will soon feature additional projects and engagement opportunities.

“Community input is critical to ensure that we are making decisions and using our resources to benefit everyone in the community. Engage Birmingham offers a convenient way for the community to share their voice,” said Lauren Wood, Director of Public Services. “The Public Services department is excited for this new platform as a way to receive input on various parks bond related projects.”
