City to offer Internet access to live and on-demand video of public meetings

Reader comments (0)

Great news from the City of Charlottesville... starting January 2, 2007, the public will have access to both live streaming video and on-demand archival video of the meetings of City Council, the Planning Commission, and the Board of Architectural Review.  The City has implemented an Internet broadcast product from Granicus.

The media release notes that:

This new software solution creates an integrated public record of City Council agendas, minutes, and audio/video content, which are all searchable by keyword in one interface that is linked to the agenda of the meetings. City Council, Planning Commission and Board of Architectural Review (BAR) meetings will initially be featured followed by other meetings and important videos of resident interest at a later date. Users can search by keyword or “jump” to the moment when a specific item was discussed through a drop-down tool within hours of a meeting.

Assuming this works well, Charlottesville Tomorrow will have another resource which we can use to draw the public's attention to important land use and transportation issues in our area.  Stay tuned!
