Stillwater Seeks Public Input Using Polco

The City of Stillwater is using Polco, an innovative engagement platform where residents can have input into the community decision-making process. By increasing civic engagement through web-based polling, there is an opportunity to meet Stillwater residents where they are.

Stillwater’s rollout of Polco will focus on elements of the 2040 Comprehensive Plan. The City will release Polco questions focusing on perceptions of public safety, community quality of life, performance of local government, taxes and more. This is an opportunity to let the City know what is valued most, what may need to be improved, and what opportunities there are for the future.

Residents become active users by downloading the Polco app or by visiting polco.us/stillwater and creating an account by answering a few brief questions. Polco is committed to a strict privacy policy where they only share aggregated de-identified results. Participant detailed data and votes are never shared (not even to the City of Stillwater). This service is free to all community members.
