The Seattle Post Globe has an article today detailing how citizens in Seattle can now use SeeClickFix on the Capitol Hill Seattle Blog to report issues in their neighborhood. The article notes that watch areas have been set up for the Seattle Department of Transportation and the head of the City Councils's Transportation Committee, Tom Rasmussen. They are encouraging readers to use SeeClickFix to report issues because the tool provides a way for citizens to create a community around the issues. When neighbors get involved in helping to find and resolve issues in coordination with government, rather than simply anonymously sending reports through the City's 684-ROAD complaint line, they can build deeper relationships with one another.
We look forward to working with the team at Capitol Hill Seattle blog in helping citizens help themselves.
