          • Rate the Downtown Cool Factor

            The Longmont Downtown Development Authority is trying out a new vision statement: Downtown Longmont is a cool urban neighborhood where everyone wants to be! We realize that everyone has their own definition of COOL, and we want to know what that is! We would like to have a "Cool Factor" app where people can either post ideas or pictures of things they think WOULD BE COOL in Downtown Longmont or things they have experienced which ARE COOL in Downtown Longmont. These could be posted to our web site or facebook site.

            • Tracks the City of Longmont's wellness program!

              Currently we cannot reach a large proportion of our population that does not have access to a computer each day. Because of this, it is hard to communicate and have them participate. We need an app the tracks wellness points as well as communicates the upcoming wellness events. The current tracking system is going away and this might be a good replacement. It needs to be able to be updated with current events in real time as well as a web based app that users could use from a computer if they do not have a smart phone. It would…

              • English to Spanish translation app.

                If City employees could have their own personal translator in their pocket thru a smartphone then they could provide customer service to our Spansh speaking population without having to call on a colleague or having to send the customer to another location. I could see an app where the customer speaks into the phone in Spanish, the message is translated into English, an answer is spoken into the phone in English and heard by the customer in Spanish.

                • Be Healthy In Longmont App Idea

                  This app would be created to identify healthy eating and active living choices for consideration by those who live, learn, work or play in Longmont. It would have the ability to a person to put their current location into the app and then app would identify a safe way that the person could walk or bike (using existing maps) to eat, school, work, play, etc. It also would identify places where fruit and vegetables are sold. The app could even identify number of calories burned or miles traveled. Other community assests could be included in this app such as art…

                    • can combine the Eco Pass, Rec Pass and Library card into one card

                      We have so many City cards, it would be nice to be able to combine the card reading capabilities of the Library card and Recreation Card and Eco pass into one.

                      • Create an app showing which streets have been plowed following a major snow storm-in real time.

                        This will help emergency responders travel the plowed streets and respond quicker in an emergency. It will also help the public travel on plowed streets to get to grocery stores and pharmacies, etc. The data could be collected via GPS systems on snow plow trucks, then mapped to a city streets grid.

                        • I would like to suggest a Longmont City App which would show a live webcam image of the various tennis courts in town.

                          Currently when I wish to play tennis I just drive around to various courts in town until I can find a free court. This is a waste of time and gas. Also it might be possible to put the times that various courts are reserved for high school events and lessons on an APP that could be easily accessed and updated by those with reservations. ~ Wendy K.

                            • ... gives you a "local footprint" score based on my spending similar to the apps that give you a "carbon footprint score."

                              We all know that buying local helps support the community via sales tax and business property tax. I "try" to buy local when i can, but i have no way to measure it or track my progress. For all i know, i'm supporting schools/libraries/parks in Portland or in Little Rock more than i am in my own community due to my spending habits. I need an app that can link with my CC and Bank statements and show me where and what my slaes/property tax $s are going. With the unsustainable & disastrous state of education funding in Colorado it…

                                OpenBike.co was the winner of the 2012 Denver Code4Communities hackathon. The basic framework is already built but needs additional devs to expand across the Front Range communities and improve it for all.

                                  It would be great if there were an app that describes the drop-in class schedules and descriptions for the classes available at the recreation center, centennial pool, senior center, etc. Having the open/lap swim schedules online would be great too, along with the drop in fees and class fees.
