This is an interesting idea, though e-participation in Europe has been spectacularly unsuccessful.

From a general innovative engagement perspective, community boards (or neighborhood associations in Mpls or District Councils in St. Paul) could be a very interesting starting point for creating open source tools for connecting local people to a hybrid of representative decision-making and participatory democracy.

I've always wondered what the Drupal or WordPress template and plugin/module combo would be to make participatory local democracy more accessible.

Also, on webcasting ... the Volis project from Estonia might be worth checking out. I was told it was open source:
