  • Do you have any additional comments or questions regarding the Devon Bathhouse Renovations?

    Far and away, my biggest concern is a project of such major reach that Devon has to be closed down weeks early. I am among legions of regular Devon attendees who have, for many years, treasured and deeply appreciated the post-Labor Day extension we get here in UA. No grand vision being proposed is worth closing Devon early.

Open Town Hall is not a certified voting system or ballot box. As with any public comment process, participation in Open Town Hall is voluntary. The responses in this record are not necessarily representative of the whole population, nor do they reflect the opinions of any government agency or elected officials.

Open Town Hall has two participation channels:

  • The Registered Channel: Sign in before or just after you submit your response. Either way, Peak Democracy will show your response on this website.
  • The Unregistered Channel: Don't sign in and remain anonymous. Peak Democracy will just share your response with Upper Arlington staff.

Note: The first time you sign in, you'll need to register (establish an account on Open Town Hall). Registration is free.

The City of Upper Arlington has contracted with Peak Democracy to monitor responses shown on this website.

  • To prevent any single user from dominating the forum, the City of Upper Arlington restricts the number of responses any one user can post on selected topics. Registration helps Peak Democracy enforce this restriction.
  • Users, staff and government leaders often want to know the neighborhood from which a response is posted. Peak Democracy uses registration to show the neighborhood next to each response (not the address).
  • If a user posts a response that does not meet the City of Upper Arlington guidelines for civility, Peak Democracy uses the user's email address to invite the user to resolve the issue.

Peak Democracy will get your contact information. The company is under contract with the City of Upper Arlington to hold it in strict confidence per their privacy policy.

  • Since you'll see your own response on Open Town Hall, you'll be able to confirm that your response was posted as you intended.
  • You'll be able to change and/or delete your response as long as the topic is open.

Yes. Sign out, then set your privacy preference to be "No - just show it without my name to staff". You won't need to register.

While no authentication procedure can perfectly detect every fraudulent registration, Peak Democracy is able to secure the registered channel against systematic fraud: cases where users submit enough statements with fraudulent registrations to sway the overall interpretation of the feedback.

Peak Democracy is unable to secure the unregistered channel against systematic fraud, because unregistered users are anonymous.

Neither the registered nor the unregistered channel represent a certified voting system or ballot box - and that caveat is footnoted on every page of feedback. Instead, both are additional channels for feedback to government.

Users can participate on the registered channel (by signing in) or on the unregistered channel (by remaining anonymous). The City of Upper Arlington offers both channels in order to broaden participation and maximize decision makers' insights.

The registered channel enables users to assure decision makers that their feedback comes from a real person in a specific neighborhood. It also enables users to participate in a public discussion on the website, as well as manage their own response after posting it.

The unregistered channel is for users who want to provide quick feedback without registering, and/or whose privacy concerns would prevent them from participating if required to register. Because many users with valuable insights will only share them anonymously, this channel gives decision makers the option to consider those insights in their deliberations.

Peak Democracy is a non-partisan company whose mission is to broaden civic engagement and build public trust in government. The City of Upper Arlington has contracted with Peak Democracy to administer Open Town Hall.
