VIDEO: Palo Alto Continuing Open Data Push for City Government

February 23, 2013 - 3:29 pm

California Forward first reported on the city of Palo Alto’s Open Data Platform in August.  The city is using technology to create a more inclusive form of local government.  Months after its launch, we wanted to find out how if citizens are answering the call to become more engaged.

 

California Forward is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization working to bring government closer to the people and move the state in the right direction – forward. They believe empowered local communities are best equipped to solve their own problems, and there is a critical link between many of the problems that threaten our future and our state government, which has become ineffective, unresponsive, and unable to fix itself.
