OpenPlans – Open Source City Planning

Here are some wonderful open source volunteerism-centered city planning web applications being demoed in NY. I really like the idea of letting citizens suggest places to focus city services, not just bike racks, bike paths, but things like schools and bus routes. This could really lower the bar from showing up to city hall with a petition…maybe someday you could twitter or FB-like a bike path into existence?
