Code for America led project: Finding out information from city government shouldn’t be difficult.

Imagine a tool that allows citizens to stay informed about the city issues they care about most.The CfA team will focus on building an app that aggregates all public information—such as hearings, elections, city hall meetings and more—and allows individuals to easily digest and filter that information, and provide input on those topics that interest them. Ideally, the app’s functionality would allow you to: Get alerts about a specific location (like your house, a reoccuring nuisance in your neighborhood, or your neighborhood in general). Get alerts about specific policy outcomes that you care about. Ie. Bicycle policy. Get alerts about policy outcomes tied to a specific location (neighborhood)
