And puts its city code online for all

Chicago is the latest in a growing list of cities to open up its city code to the public by making it available online and in an open source format. Chicago City Code is the latest site to launch as part of the OpenGov Foundation’s State Decoded project. OpenGov says its Decoded project “is part of a broader initiative to bring the law – the most important information in any community – to the people in more accessible, modern formats that can be used and reused,” according to its website. You can find more information about which states currently offer the code and participate. If you’d like to bring the State Decoded project to your city or state, send an e-mail to: [email protected]
