So what’s CivicLift doing there?

When you want to attend a town event, how do you find one? Your town hall’s website? The library calendar? The social media feed of your favorite local business? The point is, the information is out there, but it’s coming from a million different sources across a dozen different mediums. Often, these sources are competing, fracturing the message and leaving users confused and frustrated.
That’s what sets CivicLift apart. It provides streamlined, curated and relevant information directly to the citizenry. By taking these sources and aggregating and moderating them, CivicLift draws eyes directly to the events happening in your town, fostering 360 degrees of community engagement and economic development.
