The city’s Office of Innovation and Technology launched a prototype site and wants your feedback on it. New prototypes will launch every two weeks, according to a city release.


“This project is about more than just a facelift,” Chief Innovation Officer Adel Ebeid said in a statement. “It’s about redesigning the experience customers have interacting with city government online.”

The prototype is simpler than the current, which inundates the user with lots of options.

Civic Technology Director Aaron Ogle and Civic Technology Engineer Gabriel Farrell are working on this project, along with fellow OIT staffers Majdoleen Shehab, Karissa Demi, Tammy Mullin, and Kyle Odum, said Chief Data Officer Tim Wisniewski.
