If SeeClickFix had a wishlist, this item would go there:

I'm always interested in the City Plan and the Board of Zoning Appeals proceedings. I wish that the transcripts, video, applicant submissions from all meetings were digitally archived, posted, and easily searchable on the City's website.

The New Haven Independent does a great job of reporting on much of the proceedings, but a complete archival database of proceedings would be a truly great resource for New Haveners.

As it currently stands, the City Plan and BZA sites have past and current agendas, but no meeting minutes or other information. An excellent example of the type of fastidious dedication to transparency and information sharing is the Toronto government website, with links to all committees that include agendas, minutes, decisions, and background information on all items up for consideration.

Perhaps the Board of Aldermen should consider raising the issue for consideration of the City's online efficacy.
