Minneapolis’ watered down Open Data Policy


MinneapolisThe City of Minneapolis passed an official Open Data policy on June 30th which “sets in motion the creation of an open data portal so new kinds of City data can be accessed online by the public.”

This represents a concerted effort towards increasing transparency, consistency and ease of access for residents, researchers, reporters and developers who often interface with any of the various 24+ departments operating under the hierarchy of Mayor Betsy Hodges and a 13 person City Council.
