Illinois Open Technology Challenge Winner Certificate for Greg Baugues, Belleville Code

Published on

Rather than using Belleville’s existing open data sets, Greg Baugues, an entrepreneur and software developer with Chicago-based Web development and digital consulting firm Table XI, unlocked new data from the city’s ordinances – including those for business and building zoning regulations – to create a comprehensive resource tool. In addition to making it easier for businesses and residents to access the information, he added a comment function to allow for two-way communications to help increase understanding of the laws.

“I chose to create a tool for Belleville because there isn’t much open data available there yet,” said Baugues. “BellevilleLaw.com will be especially useful for new and existing businesses looking to locate in Belleville. This is a tool that has the potential to boost business development and housing construction, while also relieving stress on the City Clerk’s office.”
