Propose Your Idea

Talent City is a citizen sourced ideas forum for people like you to propose new ideas about how local government can be better. See what ideas your fellow citizens have put forward and help them make their ideas better by suggesting improvements or giving your opinion.

After the new mayor is elected, the people who made the best suggestions and contributed to the conversation in a constructive way will have an opportunity to meet with the new Mayor and his transition team to make a pitch for why he should implement your idea!

The new Mayor needs your ideas . . . so contribute your talent today.

Below, for each category, you can see the link for a random idea. Please click on the heading to see all ideas in that category.
