Project Phase: Redeploy (Wishlist)
Description: One stop shop for ALL citizens to subscribe for geo-centric alerts from various departments of their local government. City event notifications, Upcoming street closures, Permit violations, crime in their neighborhood, etc. Help residents better understand whatâ€™s going on in their area, when itâ€™s going to happen, and why. By providing timely information to residents in areas that are relevant to them, the city can be proactive instead of reactive.
Goal: Build trust through transparency, and increase civic engagement across the board.
Dependencies: Open Data Portal (to be deployed in Durham by 2015) to dump relevant datasets from different data sources
