New Civic Resources
CivicLex’s Information Hub contains both Issue Coverage and Civic Resources - more static pieces of information that residents can learn and use to further their participation in local civic affairs.
Some the resources launched this year allow residents to find out who represents them on city council, what district they live in, where to vote, how LFUCG is organized and how to get in touch with various offices and officials. Each resource operates with the aim to break down barriers to participation and make local government more accessible to the people it serves.
