Any nuisance issue could be a potential application of this app: noise, litter, overgrown lawn, building disrepair, &c. How difficult would it be to build in SMS updates? (i.e. if I report a problem, the app will send me a text when it’s been addressed.) Will this demo allow me to see what other people have reported into the system already? Maybe I spotted a major hazard (look at the telephone pole at E 35th & Drayton for a good example ) but somebody beat me to the punch. If that feature is supported, could we allow other users to boost it through an “upvote” or “+1” sort of system?
This may be a whole separate matter, but what do you think of possibly integrating this with development applications, rezoning petitions & other assorted land use actions? Perhaps a user could log in and then see that their neighbor wants to get a variance from the Zoning Board of Appeals to make some modification to her home.
Thanks for tagging me, I am curious to see how this shakes out.
