I think a key category of projects you will still want to consider are government use of third party tools outside of their absolute control (Facebook, SeeClickFix, etc.) as well examples where governments agree to a partnership framework.
A lot of the commericial neighbor connecting sites like CommonsPlace and NextDoor have various frameworks.
On our end the City of St. Paul formally partnered with our BeNeighbors.org outreach campaign and we are meeting further with key city departments one by one to get them comfortable with feeding and engaging the "shared" community information stream.
One key piece of reality is that "Likes" on Facebook Pages branded by city departments are almost meaningless because of EdgeRank (imho, "likes" are the new "hit"). EdgeRank is fundamentally designed to edge out more general public life engagement over personal connections you've shown through being tracked on FB as really mattering to you. So, we've found government bodies both interested in our "inclusion" efforts (we just hired 11 summer outreach team members speaking at least 7 different languages) and our going beyond siloed online engagement.
You can access the city partnership agreement from:
Keep up in the loop as many communities can benefit from your review.
Thanks for the re-posts Steven.The main reason for the narrow focus is because they are trying to figure out how to develop their own model (e.g. governance, resourcing, etc.). They want to see how other bureaucracies have tackled the challenge of adapting to this new reality. Also, the project is fairly small in scope, with less than 8 weeks to deliver it.That said, we'll be doing a broader review as well. They are particularly focused on 'engagement' - cities that have bravely waded into authentic conversations with citizens. Any standout examples on this front would be very valuable.Thanks.On Thu, Jun 7, 2012 at 10:40 AM, Steven Clift <[address removed]> wrote:

Matt, what is their definition/scope for online engagement models?
Also, I think you need to be open to online engagement models that have
taken hold in the cities for civic purposes and not just those
selected/owned by city governments. If you go narrow, you've missed 90% of
"what works" that cities could embrace.
