Projects

Take a look at some Seattle-based civic technology projects! Some of these are worked on at Open Seattle meetups and some are great local examples of civic tech projects.

Seattle Boundaries

Seattle has a lot of boundaries: city council districts, school districts, zoning, police beats, and a lot more. This tool makes it easy to know which boundaries you're in so you can better understand how city services and policies affect you.
