Civic Innovation 

The City's CIO, Otto Doll, is serving as a Code for America municipal partner to support the CfA Brigade Captain program in the Twin Cities. Open Twin Cities is the local CfA Brigade community organization with Bill Bushey and Alan Palazzolo as Brigade Captains. See more via the Open Twin Cities Google Group.

Additional examples of our involvement:

Hack for MN video with introductions from Otto Doll, City of Minneapolis CIO, Carolyn Parnell, State of Minnesota CIO, and Andrea Casselton, City of St. Paul CIO.  Seventy-five participants from the Twin Cities worked on 13 projects over the course of 19 hours.

IT held follow up meetings with three teams to help advance their application development projects: mspbus.org, DataPark, and Connect Me Minneapolis.

“There is a huge need for these kinds of community org/tech community collaborations, and I was amazed by the breadth and depth of the project ideas. Keep this up-I'd definitely attend more of these in the future!” ~ Visualizing Neighborhoods hack event participant.
