Thanks for the article on one my favourite themes. To the many good points above, I would add in response to this suggestion by Adrian:

In the case of the Pearl Street bridge, imagine if the city had posted signs next to the bridge that advised residents of plans for the > bridge and that featured a short, memorable address to a website where residents could provide suggestions, vote for suggestions they approved of, and provide commentary on the plans.

While that approach would work for many RTH readers and younger persons in general, engagement has to take into consideration multiple ways of reaching people who otherwise might be excluded. Many people, especially at the older end of the spectrum, are not so Internet savvy and would prefer to use the phone or meet in person to express their views.
