Bryan Principe, city council candidate in Providence's 13th Ward, is hosting a SeeClickFix event this Sunday.
Check out the following description, taken from the event's Facebook page. What a great idea! He'd totally get our vote.
Bryan Principe invites you to participate in an effort to map areas of improvement needed in Ward 13 Providence, RI. We'll take three hours on Saturday morning to use our smartphones and the SeeClickFix application to walk the Ward and take pictures of needed improvements (such as blighted lots, potholes, trees that need trimming, sidewalk repairs). For those of us without smartphones, issues can be noted and uploaded via the website. Come learn about this impressive program as well as meeting neighbors and Bryan Principe of course!
We will meet at 9 am at the Carl G. Lauro school at the corner of DePasquale Ave. and Kenyon St. At that point we will divide into groups and handout maps of the area-split up and snap some pics! Meeting back at the school at noon for lunch.
We will have fair trade coffee and treats in the morning and sandwiches for lunch provided by Hudson Street Deli, as well as beverages provided by Swing Juice (see www.swingjuice.com), a new local beverage company.
Please RSVP so we can plan the maps accordingly.
