Legistar!

TimeLifeBuilding-001

Beginning Friday February 7th, 2014, The Chicago Park District, through the Secretary of the Board of Commissioners and her staff, is implementing a new electronic meeting agenda software system called Legistar. The purpose of installing and using this software is to increase the efficiency of preparing and managing the agenda for the Board of Commissioners meetings. The web-based software will provide greater flexibility for the Board and public to access agenda materials online as well as make it simpler to research and produce reports of meeting agendas and minutes. The use of Legistar will enable the Board’s meeting agenda to be paperless to the greatest extent possible.

The key features include electronic submission and editing of agenda items, a public legislative portal with 24/7 access and the ability to track agenda items from inception through actions taken. Public users will be able to sign up to speak, view full versions of pending legislation, automatically add a meeting to their calendar and receive updates and RSS feeds by signing up with an email address.

The Secretary of the Board of Commissioners and her staff are implementing Legistar content in several phases. Presently, the site contains information about upcoming Board meetings. Over the coming months, content from past meetings, including video and meeting minutes, will become available for viewing. Most exciting, the site will allow users to search the entire record history by keyword or phrase.

The Legistar portal may be found at: https://chicagoparkdistrict.legistar.com/Calendar.aspx.
