SeeClickFix is a map-based citizen-reporting platform that enables citizens, through the web and/or mobile phones, to report and track non-emergency events in their communities. Co-founder Ben Berkowitz developed the idea after getting frustrated with city hall’s lack of response to graffiti in his neighborhood. Through his service, governments can access an informative dashboard to keep up with outstanding issues and close the loop with constituents. The communications platform allows citizens to report non-emergency issues and helps governments track, manage, and reply.
Berkowitz’s idea is based on the belief that changes that have a real impact on daily life occur at the neighborhood or city level. The goal of the project is to provide the best tools for residents and governments to communicate. SeeClickFix could not be accomplished without help; it is only made possible by the volunteers, citizens, and members of governments large and small who are passionate about everything civic.
