Maple Ridge: Open Government Story
February 27, 11:00 am PT
Hosted by: City of Maple Ridge
Presenter: Christina Crabtree, Chief Information Officer, City of Maple Ridge
Description: The City of Maple Ridge embarked on its Open Government journey approximately three years ago. Although the guiding principles for this project focused primarily on increasing accessibility, engagement and transparency to citizens, we realized early on that there were also enormous benefits to be gained by City staff. Through concentrating our efforts on business value, we tapped into our abundance of corporate data and repackaged this data into tools and applications that deliver information that is both beneficial to citizens and that delivers business value and efficiencies to City staff and its operations.
Biography: Christina Crabtree has been with the City of Maple Ridge for over 12 years. In her current role as Chief Information Officer, she is responsible for all aspects of the technology strategies and services relating to the City. With a recent refresh of the City’s IT Strategic Plan, the City is focusing its energies on creativity and innovation in its service delivery model. A commitment to anywhere, anytime from any device and in maximizing the value of the City’s data for both staff and citizens are key drivers in the City’s approach to Open Government. Christina has been in the technology industry for 30 years, working in almost every aspect of the field and in private, public and university sectors.
