June SeeClickFix Shoutouts

June was a busy month here at SeeClickFix. We welcomed Berkeley, CA, Hammond, IN, Charleston, IL, and Tontitown, AK as new government partners and saw the official launch of the Commonwealth Connect mobile application.

Commonwealth Connect, which was inspired by the Citizens Connect app in Boston, will serve 54 cities and towns in Massachusetts. You can read about the launch from press outlets in Springfield, Randolph, Fall River (here and here), Taunton, Whitman, Barnstable and Eastham, Chicopee, Lexington, Westborough (here and here), and Needham.

In established SeeClickFix cities, residents continue to bring about positive changes in their communities. SeeClickFixers in Saratoga Springs, NY urged the city to reorient a dangerous and confusing intersection. The city has now set aside $175,000 for the project. In Toronto, residents brought broken drinking fountains, dangerous pedestrian spaces, and a hazardous road situation for cyclists to the attention of city departments. The city scheduled fixes for all of the issues.

Finally, take a look at these SeeClickFix shoutouts on greenbiz.com, iRevolution, datascientist.co, and Financial Landscaper.
