Make it easier to find business entities by adding search abilities by person and address.
An API for easily accessing all the data on the Secretary of State webpage.
Although I can search the MN History Center's collection for images from Linden Hills, they don't seem to be geolocated or available in a map. It would be fun to have them on a map, like photos on Google Maps or Earth. These be also used to create history tours of neighborhoods.
As a citizen, I have ideas for xyz (starting a coffee shop with entertainment in a specific residential neighborhood, or building an in-ground pool, etc.) but it's kinda hard to figure out what's relevant to my specific situation, whatever it may be.
There should be some kind of interactive site that's consistent and easy to read.
The State should make available statistics on the economy similar to the IRS Tax Statistics web page:
Combining the Registered voters per precinct data with census data of actual population per precinct. This could be helpful for any group trying to register voters, allowing them to focus on the areas with the least Registration density.

A catalog of all the data that is available with the ability to vote on the priority of creating the services that will make it available.

Neighborhood groups need tools for understanding how parking (or other livability factors) will be affected by proposals to build a new multi-unit dwelling, replace parking with a bike lane, or adding a grocery store. Currently they have to believe vague reassurances from the developer or government or the fearful cries of opponents.
A question about arsenic in groundwater came up at the ideation event. Heat maps of groundwater analytes could be made using the MPCA's Groundwater API.
Here's a sample URI requesting groundwater data from monitoring wells in Ramsey County: http://services.pca.state.mn.us/api/v1/groundwater/monitoring-stations/results?stationPurpose=Monitoring&specificGeoAreaCode=county__123&format=text
