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.
