Not in Philly Testing

Not in Philly

Being built in the open at Notinphilly.org

Nice write up on the project is at: https://codeforphilly.org/blog/not_in_philly_cleans_house

In return for a 6 month commitment to go out once a week to pick up the litter on a block, we supply citizens the resources (bags and a trash grabber) and incentives (gift cards drawn from member pics of their cleaned block #notinphilly on Instagram).

Drop us a line at notinphilly@gmail.com. We also like to chat on slack, https://notinphilly.slack.com/

The to-do lists are kept on trello:…

Kiqstnd Bootstrapping

A bike parking locator that allows users to find Bike Parking published through Open Data Philly and allows for user input to display parking they've discovered. In addition, a map overlay of Bike Theft data would be able to be toggled to show theft by month and year.

This project has not had much activity since its inception in October 2013 but I would love to kickback the Kiqstnd, and get this going again!!!

Are you interested in working on a cool Bicycle App?

Kiqstnd needs you.
