CitySync - Apps for an even Greater Portland

The City of Portland is proud to partner with residents and local business to create a new, interactive online resource for and by the Greater Portland community. CitySync, an innovative, personalized web-based platform, aims to engage our community partners to help generate and build ideas, apps, and data to support increased civic awareness, participation, and collaboration among residents, local business, and city government. We're building a platform for tools and services to help residents and local businesses, powered by government and community data.

To support this effort, we'll be launching the CitySync Challenge, offering prize awards for top ideas and apps submitted by you, the local residents and businesses of Portland. All submissions will be juried for their benefit to the residential and business communities. Those apps chosen to have the greatest value to the community will be included as part of the CitySync app gallery, a collection of features available to the CitySync end-user.

More information on both CitySync and the CitySync Challenge will be announced in the days and weeks ahead. In the meantime, please check out the following description of the CitySync platform.
