Q: Why is the City of Baytown engaging online?

Traditional public engagement or community involvement usually involves attending a public meeting or providing written submissions to council, and this can often be time consuming and inconvenient, and sometimes intimidating. However, Baytown Engage gives you the opportunity to have your say on issues that are important to you, at a time and place of your choice.

  • It is a quick, safe and convenient way to have your say on a range of issues and topics.
  • It is a great way to keep up to date and contribute your views on issues affecting your community.
  • You can see what other community members think about an issue or topic, respond with your own views and engage in a discussion.
  • You do not have to attend community meetings at a set place and time, you can contribute at a time and place that suits you.
  • It allows for a range of different people, with different views to discuss matters that may impact their community.

Q: How do I submit my feedback?

A: Each project on Baytown Engage is a little unique depending upon the engagement level required for that project. Visit the project page that you are interested in and submit your feedback via the online discussion forums, quick polls, forms and surveys for each of the projects currently open for consultation.

Q: Why do I need to register in order to make a comment?

A: While registration is not required to view the content of the Baytown Engage site or to view other people's comments or questions, it is necessary to use many of the more interactive engagement tools offered here. We ask you to register for a few reasons:

  • It helps us better understand if the feedback we receive accurately represents the demographics of our city and see which groups might not be well-represented so we can better target our marketing and promotion efforts.
  • It promotes accountability and encourages people to provide more thoughtful responses because feedback can be attributed to them.
  • It also means that we can send you updates about the projects you engage with and let you know when new projects you might be interested in are posted.

Q: Can I use Baytown Engage anonymously?

A: Yes. Even when you register and post comments, the only thing that is visible to other users is your Username. If you want to remain anonymous, don't use your actual name as your Username.

Q: What happens to my feedback/comments?

A: All comments, ideas and suggestions are collated and used by the relevant project teams to inform the development of strategies, programs and activities, or to gain an insight into community views and opinions.

Often, feedback provided online is used in conjunction with other face-to-face engagement activities, such as stakeholder interviews, public meetings/hearings and open houses.

When a project closes, all feedback/comments are compiled into a report, which will be presented to decision-makers at the City.

All feedback provided during consultation will be considered; however, this does not mean that every suggestion will affect the project or be adopted as proposed.

I think Baytown Engage is a great platform, where citizens can be more involved, know whats going on in the community, and having the ability to voice our own opinions and thoughts concerning what goes on in Baytown....

I would like to know "why", the YMCA was closed permantley?? The Ymca is important and should be voted to reopen, better, and improved. The YMCA provides structured atmosphere for all ages. It has programs to assist everyone. This community should improve the programs, add more programs More fun filled activities, crafts, sports, assistance in homework, After school programs, volunteers, mentors, more for teenagers to do. The future generation of Baytown, is our children. We should be making sure the Future of Baytown is not only provided a great education. But a stable place to go for activities, sports, homework, daycare, gym, pool, volunteers, mentors. I believe it was a mistake closing the YMCA, and should be opened and improved. Its only right for the children and teens.

Does ANYONE know when 146/99 tollway project from the Freddy will be completed? Will there be a frontage road for us to access from Alexander (Bus 146)? Anyone???

Whats going to happen to the Roundtable in May?? Will yall set up another set of teens?? Is it over for good?? I think it should continue and have teens serve a few months then other teens serve. What has been accomplished at the roundtable??

Could SOMEONE tell us what is going on at the Baytown Animal Control building?? They still don't accept cats, the construction is ongoing but not a peep about it on this site and we're all wondering WHY? This is a page where we should be able to find information easily and readily. What's up with the Animal Control?? Not all of us can afford the Baytown Sun.

I like the Teen Roundtable. This is great. Baytown needs teens ideas, opinions of how to improve in Baytown. Especially for more education, sports, activities for children and teens in Baytown. There isnt enough for our teens to do.

I would like to see east rd. Get new pavement and speed jumps in front of pirates bay water park.

I like this idea! I think Baytown is doing a pretty good job of making our city a good place to live. Think about other areas besides Garth Rd though. Business 146 needs help!

Excited about Baytown Engage. No other time I can remember when the strength of a community is as important as it is now. How we care for ourselves and those immediately around us now will determine what kind of future we will have. Looking forward to learning more...

I'd really love to know what's going on with 146 / 99 from the Freddy through Baytown South, as I refer to it. Will the overpass be tollway? How many lanes will 146 eventually be? How will we get to the Bayland Marina? It's a really nice spot and O'Neals is the only place in Baytown where we can actually eat on the waters edge. Can someone help me get these answers, because there's no mention of that project on this site. THANKS, - Lynn Urlaub- 2400 French Pl, 77520
