The City of Charlotte and the Knight Foundation recently kicked off Code for Charlotte, part of the Code for America Fellowship program which envisions an open government that keeps pace with evolving communities and technologies.
The Fellowship program places talented developers, designers, and researchers with local governments to develop innovative solutions. The effort also includes a local volunteer group of technologists, known as a Brigade. These volunteers will work in collaboration with the Fellows and independently on new web applications that can improve municipal services, community engagement, and make government more transparent.
Visit codeforcharlotte.org to learn more about the initiative, submit technology ideas or volunteer for the Code for Charlotte Brigade.
Keep Charlotte Beautiful (KCB) recently received the Keep America Beautiful (KAB) President’s Circle Award, recognizing exemplary performance made by certified affiliates of the national nonprofit in building and sustaining vibrant communities.
In qualifying for the award, KCB has met KAB standards of merit by conducting an annual Community Appearance Index, calculating the affiliate’s cost/benefit ratio and administering activities in the areas of litter prevention, recycling and waste reduction, and beautification and community greening.
“One of Keep America Beautiful’s most effective tools is the work of our grassroots network of affiliate organizations, which has an impact on millions of Americans each year,” said KAB President and CEO Jennifer Jehn. “Our affiliates are providing real solutions to local problems caused by litter, graffiti, illegal dumping and other community blight by engaging volunteers of all ages in its effort to create a vibrant community."
