The City and County of Denver partnered with Code for America to demonstrate innovation using open data and user-centered service design.
The City and County of Denver partnered with Code for America to demonstrate innovation with open data and good service design. Rather than focusing on one large project, the 2014 Fellowship team in Denver decided to tackle several smaller problems the city and its residents face everyday. Check out the Fellows' mid-year update for more details.
The team built Denver Street Sweeping, a website that allows residents to sign up for street sweeping reminders near their home so they avoid tickets. The City and County of Denver developers will take over the application and add additional schedules. Fellows also worked on Denver's Open Data Portal.
Fellows also built Cute Pets Denver, a Twitter bot that tweets out adorable pictures of adoptable pets from Denver's animal shelter to help save these animals from euthanasia. This project has been re-deployed in cities like Boston, Austin, and Norfolk.
