City websites

I'm planning to develop a website for the city I'm living in. The city has it's own website on the .org, I'll be developing the .com. I want to include things like city news, business information, events, attractions, a private forum for residents, etc. Hoping to sell ads to local businesses.

Looking for examples of similar sites that are successful or where you just like the design (even if you designed it). Thanks in advance for any submissions. Post here or send me a private message.
