Use WebKit (HTML5) Client Side Databases When Available

HTML5 includes a powerful client side SQL DB capability that hardly any sites use yet. This would be a perfect place to store user prefs and other user-specific data instead of in session variables, if the browser allows it. Could fall back to session variables and cookies for older browsers, but any WebKit based browser should be able to manage its own user data.

feedback/ratings on public services

Ability to give feedback on services or agencies: ratings, kudos, complaints, requests for different hours or locations, etc. Of course, this would need some kind of "deputized" moderation that keeps it from being a flame-war, and doesn't scare the pants off the bureaucrats, yet allows real problems to "bubble up" and be seen.

Imagine what might happen with certain law-enforcement matters...

Community input

I would like to see a Yelp - style input/feedback section. The community should be able to rate services and make comments. I realize this can get ugly, but if Yelp and the neighborhood listservs are any example the sum total is quite informative.

Live Music Listings

A better live-music search. Use Turn2Live (turn2live.com) as an event feeder and event manager. They will have the fully fleshed out version of the site within 2 months. Not to mention, COA doesn't need to spend $45-$60K on maintenance for their live-music portal.
