New Technology And Collaboration To Help Improve Neighborhood Responsiveness
At today’s Las Vegas City Council meeting, city staff presented a report outlining how the city will work to empower, beautify and engage neighborhoods. Led by Chief Community Services Officer Karen Duddlesten, the city is working to engage neighborhoods and make it easier for residents to get the services they need from the city.
Last week, the city launched a newly refreshed city services app called Go Vegas that allows problems such as graffiti, code violations, road hazards and malfunctioning traffic signals or signage to be reported. Go Vegas offers additional city services, including the ability to check the status of service requests, connect with your councilperson, find available parking downtown, and locate public art and Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) bus stops.
The city is working to add additional neighborhood services and programming to the app, which was designed so that it can be regularly updated.
Currently, those wanting a digital one-stop shop for neighborhood services can visit the city’s website at www.lasvegasnevada.gov/neighborhoodservices to connect with services and information for the homeless, neighborhood cleanups, available grants, housing and many other services.
The Go Vegas app also provides a convenient way to watch the Emmy award-winning programming of the city’s government-access channel, KCLV Channel 2, now available to stream on your television screen via the Go Vegas channel on the Roku and Apple TV platforms.
