Mayor Murray signs historic Open Data Executive Order

Mayor Ed Murray renewed the City of Seattle's commitment to transparency by signing an Executive Order directing all City departments to comply with a new open data policy, which he announced during the 2016 State of the City address. The policy directs all City data to be "open by preference" - meaning City departments will always make their data as accessible as possible to the public, after screening for privacy, security, and quality considerations. This policy is the result of a collaboration between the City of Seattle, the University of Washington, and the Sunlight Foundation through Bloomberg Philanthropies' national What Works Cities initiative.
