Businesses can apply to put tables and chairs on the pavement. Could they apply to use car parking spaces in a similar way?
The street art community wants more walls on which they can paint. Might allowing that also solve some maintenance issues?
Could we use plant boxes to reduce the amount of stormwater entering our drains, whilst also greening our streets?
Would better driving behaviour data help us to design a better city? Would citizens be interested in providing some?
This Beta Project will look at the problem of love locks on the Ha’Penny Bridge (and neighbouring bridges and Boardwalk).
Could we help support the creation of an adult coding group for Dublin which solely focuses on civic issues and opportunities?
Should Dublin temporarily increase the amount of bicycle parking during the Summer half of the year?
Could we expand our libraries onto streets - allowing people to download books on the fly? For example, when waiting for the bus?
Could the large number of vacant properties in Dublin be temporarily used to display emerging artists?
The aim of this project is to learn about moss graffiti, and whether it might be a useful solutions for certain situations.
Should people be allowed paint artworks onto the city's traffic light boxes? Might that solve a maintenance issue for the Council?
Would a simple checklist by the City Council be useful for someone who's considering carrying out streetart?
