City of Scottsdale Organizes Social Media Campaign

City of Scottsdale Organizes Social Media Campaign

The #Scottsdale28 campaign for the month of February has highlighted a variety of special tools and resources for the local community. The social media campaign emphasizes open data and the idea that information should be freely available and accessible to everyone. The city of Scottsdale uses social media to promote openness, transparency and accountability.

Each day in February, the city has shared an online resource via Scottsdale’s social media channels to help residents and visitors learn about our city, and this trend will continue through the end of the month. This is part of Scottsdale’s involvement in the What Works Cities Initiative, as #Scottsdale28 demonstrates the variety of ways in which the city uses data to make decisions and provide resources for it’s citizens.  The national program helps cities evaluate and improve upon how they use data and evidence to engage residents, make government more effective and better the lives of people they serve.

Check out the different resources and services provided by the city and shared on social media thus far this month below, and stay tuned to the city’s Facebook channel for the rest of the month’s posts!
