If you attend your local city council, you might get a complimentary agenda for showing up.
Do you read it word-for-word? Maybe not.
But, chances are you skim for anything that catches your eye to give you peace of mind for sticking it out for the next 59 minutes or more.
Whether it be land getting rezoned for new use, such as Agriculture to Manufacturing, or a certified survey map to combine a few parcels of land, certain keywords just scream CONSTRUCTION!
Worth the stay if you're a general contractor, banker, or engineer.
But, it's not humanly possible to attend every city council, and no one has the time to skim through every agenda or minutes document posted online by every municipality in every county you care about.
That's why we built Curate.
Curate mines hundreds of thousands of those minutes and agendas documents posted each week on municipality websites for specific keywords mentioned in discussion, just like you a human would.
Gathering this geographically-sensitive data over time, we're able to piece together the big picture of construction activity across an entire state.
