Gainesville, FL

AARP Community Challenge Grant Year: 2020

Project Category: Engaging residents alongside thought leaders in problem solving

Description: The City of Gainesville hosted its first hackathon -- a virtual event that brought together local organizations and residents to improve the city's open data portal. The goal was to find ways to more easily connect neighbors with local services and resources, ultimately making Gainesville a more livable community. To reach that goal, the City purchased a domain and server space to host data from a variety of municipal departments. This allowed project organizers to demonstrate the new data portal to local leadership and community partners, ensuring their buy-in. The hackathon was part of Code for America's National Day of Civic Hacking.
