Naples, FL-based Neighborhood America's Web-based Public Communications System™ will assist state and local governments to plan and manage their Homeland Security initiatives.

Exhibiting at the 2003 American Planning Association annual conference in Denver, Neighborhood America is demonstrating the technology that operates through the Internet to manage information and collaboration in complex planning projects and public participation programs.

The system is used in diverse planning environments around the country including community development in San Francisco, economic development in Boston and Orlando, and public participation in rebuilding the World Trade Center in New York.

While state and local governments face enormous challenges to organize, manage and communicate their Homeland Security efforts, the Public Communications System™ is designed to easily manage the multitude of tasks involved in the planning process.

For Homeland Security planning, three major processes are greatly improved by the Public Communications System™: Collection and organization of large amounts of diverse information; centralizing data management and maintenance; and, facilitating public involvement and communication among the various agencies, stakeholders and citizens.

With the ability to easily view and collaborate on documents, graphs, maps and photos, the system is particularly well suited to help coordinate information and communication in security vulnerability assessments.

The system enables public-private partnerships to simultaneously manage all of their data and public communications from a centralized, integrated, reliable platform. And being Web-based, no special software is required so stakeholders and the public can manage and access information anytime.
