During the meet-up on October 7, there was a general discussion about how to work better with the City of Raleigh and the Technology and Communications Committee. We decided that it was best to come up with a top five list of projects and present them to city council. The brigade would provide a proof of concept and initial testing/deployment, then present back to the Council/committee at regular intervals to build our reputation and prove our value.
The purpose of the thread started on the Code for Raleigh forum is to start a discussion on which existing projects we should consider, then proiritize/rank them. Code for America has a listing of apps at http://www.codeforamerica.org/apps/ (note the difference between free and paid apps).
Please feel free to suggest an app on the thread.
