Need a Taste Of Austin

Having worked at High Tech companies and a dot.com I want to see a lot of pictures of life in Austin. I have many friends overseas and I want to show them a taste of Austin and there are not to many websites that have pictures of Austin and the Austin lifestyle. This new city of Austin website needs it.

Free Cake Day

There should be a free cake day every second Friday of the month. Too many bakers waste product that isn't consumed at the end of the day. Why not give it away to folks who live in Austin?

make whurley the deputy of the secretary of social web strategy

Considering that mr. hurley's suggestions have wheatliously risen amongst chaff, I recommend that whurley become the "deputy of the secretary of social web strategy" This higher gig would endow prominence to el abre del open sorcrero. Further, whurley would get a CoA contract greater than 0.05% of current budget for new site, plus dental and facial groomery. W/out whim, whurley's got a finger on it. Get the people ...more »

Can the LEADERS of OA share HOW this could possibly work for development beyond idea generation?

The Open Austin plan. First off it’s not a plan. It’s a creative use of an idea generation and capture platform called IdeaScale. What Mr. Hurley and company did was launch a “campaign” to Open Source the City’s website really without a PLAN or any INFRASTRUCTURE to make that potential plan a reality. Here are my points that I posted on the OpenAustin Facebook page once it launched. I’m not sure the logic is sound on ...more »

Energy

I would like to see a "vanishing deductible" applied to city utility services. The longer you pay into the services as a resident of Austin the less your energy rate would be. This would counteract gentrification, property taxes, and energy rate increases for the poor and elderly where the pennies on the dollar hit hardest. This could be offset by setting example for nation and allow persons to transfer their "credit ...more »

Parks

Parks have interactive map for tracking parks visited. Would allow kids to keep a comprehensive list and park officials to keep a head count of visitors. Could have easy to read symbols for park activities, hike/bike trail, pool, splash pads, creeks, fishing, bbq pits, sports fields and amenities, playgrounds, theatre and accessible parking and a notice pop up if parking costs are applicable due to special event or such. ...more »

Volunteering

Volunteerism. It would be great to see more community oriented and sponsored volunteerism. Could allow for people and city wanting to get work with the city, to check each other out. As well as means for young people to check out different trades and get "work" experience. City could help offset volunteers transportation costs by providing season pool passes at city hourly wage commitment or wage equivalent in deduction ...more »
