The City of Greensboro just launched Open Data Portal called “Open Gate City” at a public event from 6-8 pm on October 20 at HQ Greensboro, 111 W. Lewis St. The City’s open data effort is part of its work as a 2016 partner in the What Works Cities Initiative, a national program funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies that supports cities’ use of data to make government more transparent and effective.
The portal includes data from public safety, local ordinance enforcement, human resources and finance, as well as permit and inspection information. City staff will continue to gather information for release to the Open Gate City portal as an ongoing process. The portal makes data easily accessible in an effort to encourage residents to become more familiar with how their government is performing, engage with the city’s developer community, and build tools and resources that will enhance city services.
