The power of many exceeds the power of a few.
311.today empowers the citizens of your district to become powerful partners and crowdsource your service calls. Instead of the archaic top down strategy, you can now deploy the powerful bottom up model.
This solution does not lock anyone into a closed system. 311.today uses public 311 data. You get the same 311 data that the city gets. Citizens in your district do not need to sign up for proprietary smartphone apps. They do not even need to know that 311.today exists. All they need to do is to keep doing what they have already been doing, which is simply using the city’s own existing 311 system.
For added impact, we are encouraging community benefit districts to outreach to citizens and urge them to use city 311 to report service needs. The city already does this sort of outreach, and every time another citizen starts using city 311, you also have another set of eyes and ears.
Think about this dynamic for a minute.
