An app that would show the real-time availability of the city's public tennis courts. This would allow tennis players who arrive at court that is full to do a seach on their phones to see which nearby courts are not in use
Some sort of at-a-glance app for major events which will impact traffic (sporting events, parades, maybe even planned protests and school breaks). Perhaps even events at Key Arena/Seattle Center. If feasible, road closures and suggested re-routes (i.e. Broad Street, SLU changes b/c of Mercer construction work).
Seattle does not yet have a decent app / website to track what food trucks are nearby. This site would keep an index of the popular food truck locations, as well as each truck's schedule. It would also scan twitter and facebook to track last minute changes or cancellations.
What number do you call if you have a non-emergency? Could we offer a single number via Twilio that has a directory so people could find the right number? Or maybe a single website with different organizations and numbers tagged and indexed, so that they can be easily found.
This would be an app and a website that allows the user to search community centers and other public spaces for available times and locations to hold their meetings/classes, and allows them to sign-up, reserve or pay for the space. Search criteria can be entered, such as number of people, price... more »
I know someone whose car was stolen in the middle of the night from in front of his house. It was found by the police by morning but the thieves had already stripped it and stolen everything from inside of it, even the battery and some parts. They left the vehicle to be picked... more »
A matching service for schools and community organizations that need things done and volunteers, ready and able to do them for free. Kind of a "task rabbit" for volunteer tasks.
With Summer on the way it would be wonderful to have an application where you can reserve a picnic table or check for availability without being confined to the office hours of the Parks Department to make a reservation or check for availability
More creative possibilities are also there: for example, how could we help users build relationships with farmers?
Would pull Farmer's Market locations from https://data.seattle.gov/Community/My-Neighborhood-Map/82su-5fxf... more »
What's the emergency?
Wherever you are, when you hear sirens, launch this app. It will use geolocation to figure out where you are, then check police, fire, 911, and other data to see what emergency activity is going on near you.
It can sort by distance, and also translate 911 jargon into plain English.
Read data from your electronic health record and provides a basic list of allergies, medications and preferences to a first responder.
This app would use geo location and the database of city parking signs to determine if your car is legally parked.
