Gainesville’s openGNV Initiative aims to establish an infrastructure that improves access to city data and fosters citizen engagement. openGNV ushers in a new era of open and accountable government meant to bridge the gap between Gainesville residents and their government. Learn more about these opportunities:


A mobile and web-based application to quickly submit issues such as graffiti, potholes, overgrown lots, and damaged or missing street signs in the City of Gainesville. Provide city staff with the GPS location of an issue, attach relevant images of a problem, and track progress made towards resolution.


An open data portal that utilizes technology to increase public access to city data to help residents make more informed decisions improve the quality of life in our community. This site contains raw data, including utility usage, active businesses, city budget and expenditures, and multiple visualizations.


A centralized performance measurement dashboard where citizens can explore metrics and view results of our Operational Performance Measures (departments’ routine functions and activities) and Strategic Initiative Updates (City Commission projects and programs).


A Telephone Town Hall to provide an opportunity for the public to participate in a dialog with the City of Gainesville during a one-hour telephone town hall meeting.
