Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Phoenix mobile phone app for making blight reports

Related to the point in the blog entry yesterday on comprehensive policies and programs focused on abandoned properties...

From the City of Phoenix webpage:

Phoenix is the first municipality in the nation to launch a free application that allows residents with smart phones to point, click and send photos of graffiti, over-height weeds, abandoned shopping carts and other blight violations to the city's Neighborhood Services Department (NSD).

These applications also allow users to choose an option to receive updates on the status of their request.

For iPhone Users

Download the myPhxAZ application from the iPhone App store by searching for the keyword " myPhoenix " and selecting myPhxAz.

For Droid-type Phone Users

Download the application from the Droid Market by searching for the keyword "myphoenix" then clicking on My Phoenix.

Also see "Phoenix blight-report app use steady" from the Arizona Republic and this instruction sheet.
