  1. Community Recycling

    Mobile app that sends a push notification the day before (once opted in) to a user telling them which type of pick-up is coming the following day (regular, bottles and cans, green waste).

    Push notification would be sent when there is an upcoming holiday or other reason trash won't be picked up.

    App would send user a push notification when large curbside trash pickup is scheduled.

    • Water fountain locator

      I've been training for the marathon and always wonder where the parks and water fountains are along my runs. Since I don't carry water with me when I run, it be nice to know where the fountains are along my route.

              • Create an app that shows all the art in public spaces

                The City curates art and places them in various locations. This app would show each location on a map and provide some info on the piece and artist.

                  • Open311 and the city

                    How is the city planning to utilize open311? What types of services are we going to provide with open 311?

                    Having a presentation on the features of open311, the api definitions, and real world applications would be interesting from a technical standpoint.

                      There are a lot of interesting apps and ideas produced by code for america and open data hack day. Maybe exposing people to products produced by other cities might motivate them to do the same

                      • OpenData Hackathon

                        Technical conferences sometimes have a portion of the conference dedicated as a hackathon, where developers and designers create working prototypes.

                        I'm thinking that we could have developers create working APIs for others.

                          • Implement the design thinking process.

                            The first step 'empathy' is very powerful, getting the points of view from the actual users. Too often, we skip this step and assume what others want and need.

                                  OpenBlock looks like an interesting way to create hyper-local news in our neighborhoods. Based on an Open311 standard this could show traffic congestion, crime scenes, risky crosswalks, dangerous intersections, etc. http://openblockproject.org/
