Public Works

Ever walk by a construction project in your neighborhood and have questions like: What is being repaired, how long will it take, how much will it cost, what hours of the day will noisy work occur, will this close my street or turn off my utilities, who can I follow up with for more questions and information?

This application would leverage smart-phone GPS functionality to allow citizens who are in proximity to a public works or transportation project to pull up GIS-based map and project data. The application could also intake comments or questions on construction activities.

This would be great. Even better if it was essentially a mobile, location-aware, version of http://portlandmaps.com/
