The Walk Arlington App
Published January 20, 2017
We’ve talked about Walk Arlington and their amazing maps before (see here). This past December, Walk Arlington discussed their app for reporting “damaged sidewalks, missing street signs, broken streetlights, trail maintenance issues” and more. It’s called the Arlington VA Service Requests App and it’s available for free in both the Apple and Google Play app store for your smartphone:
As WalkArlington Program Manager, Alli Henry, discusses in the blog:
“The ArlingtonVA Service Requests app (yes, they have their own app) is a one-stop shop for reporting non-emergency issues, alerting the County to areas that need attention during snow events and staying informed of Arlington County’s news.
My favorite feature is the app’s ‘New Request’ option that allows users to submit a variety of issues via Arlington’s user-friendly Report A Problem tool. Damaged sidewalks, park maintenance, fallen trees, potholes or traffic signal concerns? In a few short clicks, users can snap a photo, drop a pin on the map and leave County staff a quick note.”
There’s even a helpful video from Arlington County on YouTube:
This app seems like another great product from Arlington County and is certainly worth a try for Arlington residents!
