Project Overview

Become an active member of your local residents’ association

The ULSARA (Upper Leeson Street Area Residents’ Association) project is an opportunity for the community of the Upper Leeson Street area of Dublin to support the work of their local residents’ association. By contributing information on a range of key issues to a shared map the community can help reveal and communicate the overall situation. The map can provide a basis for informed decisions and making a case for change.

How does it work?

ULSARA is accessible through the Space Engagers app, where contributing to the project is easy.

1  Upload your pictures

Take a picture of a local issue that you observe
in your area under the following categories:

Stories, places or artefacts from the past

Locations where it is not easy for everyone to get around

Condition of trees in or near the public domain

Proposals for improving the area

Proposals, applications, appeals and policies

Any other issues

2 Add Information

Once a picture has been taken the user is prompted to provide information, for example on what have they recorded and why. The picture and information is then posted onto a shared map that everyone can see.

3  Interact with other posts

Contribute to the community by starting or join a discussion on any post that interests you. Users can like, comment on, and share any post, generating conversations locally and further afield.

Collected Information

What about the data?

The data gathered provides an overview of key issues in the area. The ULSARA committee will use the data as a basis for informed decisions and making a case for change to the relevant authorities.

The map is accessible to anyone and it is possible to download the data in different formats from the web app.


Founded in 1968, the Upper Leeson Street Area Residents' Association (ULSARA) promotes the conservation and preservation of the residential character and amenities of its neighbourhood and encourages the development of community life in the area.
