Completely agree . You need to cleverly give the benefits almost like
you are convincing a business client .
One thing I could give is Apart from croud sourcing , data
availability you could definitely pitch for localised maps . Localised
for that town council . If there is huge support from the Town council
I bet we(you me or anyone) could make a huge change in the way local
data is presented and harnessed by websites,print etc !
Go for it . Its a good initiative and All the best :)
