  1. Inventory the trees on Oahu and convert to a locator app.

    It would be nice to be able to look at the tree canopy of Honolulu and know what type of trees there are. Perhaps do the inventory and allow the community to use Google Earth to view.

    • Plant trees that provide fruit (for any person to harvest) all around the city

      Example: papaya, mango, avocado, ulu etc. Citizens could get involved by being a "sponsor' of a tree. When actual people are connected to a tree, they feel a sense of ownership and pride {note: the planting of fruit trees is my cousin Kealoha's idea, not mine. I simply expanded it and am passing it on}

        • Allow cafes to provide seating outside, on sidewalk if needed.

          We live in one of the most beautiful cities on earth, with great weather year-round. Eating outdoors would enhance the quality of our lives!

              • An app to help enhance neighborhood safety

                Perhaps an app that notifies us when there has been a burglary or potentially dangerous situation in our neighborhoods. This would let people know to stay in doors or be on the look out for suspicious characters.

                • Devise a policy whereby all Honolulu websites are constructed atop a standard platform

                  Anyone should be able to build an app that can access any data on any Honolulu web site. The most effective and accurate way to do this is to agree on a set of standards whereby any future website must be built atop a platform whose data/api is available to all. Existing websites would be re-built on a schedule commensurate with their current importance/relevance in the community.

                  • Find a way to offer green, low income housing that works with families to keep their pets.

                    So many houseless families cannot find housing because they have a pet or two. Often these folks have said they'd rather sleep on the beach rather than surrender their pet & go into a shelter. If we can create green, sustainable housing that would work with owners to make sure their pets get proper medical assistance, I feel we could help people move up to better lives.

                    • A mobile app for bus routes

                      It will display closest bus route, wait times, and routes. Integrate google maps and alarm when the bus you need to take is about to arrive. Similiar to San Francisco apps http://www.routesy.com/ or iBart.

                      • Utilizing vacant shops at strip malls/shopping ctrs to establish city satelite office or other city ofc

                        Having a community office at a strip mall or shopping ctr will allow citizens to access services more easily. No need to driver far, save gas, save money.
                        Attracts people to strip mall/shopping ctr that has SLOW traffic since people are only coming t there for business (not browsing anymore).

                        • Create an app that shows all the City run parking lots and provide real time data on whether the lot is full or not.

                          If you are driving to a location and you want to find the available parking options in the area, this app would show you what City lots are open, how much they cost and whether they are full or not.

                          • Honolulu Local S.W.E.E.T.S. that people will enjoy!

                            Design/Create a City website/portal or mobile app as a one-stop organized information central that would provide real-time quick-time updated/current local information about Honolulu's S.W.E.E.T.S.: Surf, Weather, Emergencies (e.g. advisories, tsunamis, chemical spills, sewer breaks), Events (e.g. APEC, parades, block parties, stream cleaning), Traffic (e.g. accidents, alternate routes, road closures), and Services (e.g. community, elderly, permits, bus). This site/app could also utilize links to, or feeds, from relevant local/government websites to minimize numerous searches/navigations by visitors/users. It's the idea of a surefire and simple One-Stop App (with potential for other HI states to have their own). Sweet Dreams! (ML)

                            • Develop forms for assisting City agencies to quickly create announcments of functions, newsletters, etc.

                              Reducing effort in these areas can provide much more interesting content on our website or that we can distribute. It's another way of doing more with less.

                                    The portal could help me connect with my neighbors to organize and plan as well as a blog/update neighbors if there is an uptick in crime.

                                      • build an app that reminds you of upcoming renewals for all things City (and state too)

                                        Would be great to have a system that reminds you to renew and provide information on how to renew all licenses and registrations needed by both the City and State.

                                        • Trash into treasure -

                                          app/website/service that lets ppl take pics of things they see other put out on the curb for bulky pick up, post the pic and location, in some organized way (furniture delineated from appliances, etc.), so that others who might be interested in the items can go and pick up before they end up in the landfill.
