Residents can now report neighborhood issues like potholes, broken signs, cracked sidewalks and more - with photos, videos, descriptions, and automatic geolocation. Once an issue is reported, the resident will be kept in the loop about progress on fixing it. While phone lines and older options for reporting issues will remain open, these web and mobile tools will make it even easier to engage a broader base of residents.
