Urban Anomaly and the City of Lexington, Kentucky, have released an
application for easy reporting of non-emergency issues in
Lexington-Fayette Urban County, the second largest city in Kentucky. The
Lexington 311 app works with iPhone tools to enable citizens send
reports to the LexCall 311 centralized service and information contact
Mayor Jim Newberry presented the application today at the Creative
Cities Summit in Lexington.
Lexington 311 is a customized version of Urban Anomaly’s 311 Universal
iPhone application. Like 311 Universal, it includes a pinpoint tool that
improves the accuracy of the iPhone’s GPS reported coordinates and
provides the physical address of the problem, boosting the City’s
ability to locate and resolve the issue. The app organizes email reports
that contain the exact information needed to respond to the problem: a
description, photographs, contact information and the precise location.
The application was developed in just a few days for less than $2,000.
"I’m very excited to bring this simple but effective tool to iPhone
users in Lexington at such a low cost to the City. The thoughtful
deployment of mobile applications like these will democratize the new
ways citizens interact with their governments," said Steve Barham,
Director and Lead Designer of Urban Anomaly.
