Listening to "Where We Live" on WNPR this morning, I remembered that I wanted to see how SeeClickFix.com would work out in Bristol. So I've added it to this blog. If you scroll down the right, it's under the list of candidates.
What it allows is for people to report everthing from potholes to prostitutes, from cracked curbs to crackheads. You cite where's there's a problem and, in theory, government or some other institution leaps to respond. We'll see how that works out.
But it's a great concept.
I'm sorry the area I have to use includes a bit more than Bristol, but I can't seem to make the map only feaure Bristol. If I can figure it out more exactly later, I'll change that.
Meantime, give it a try. There's a lot to be said for public pressure to fix the city.
