If you wish to be more connected to the city, many apps are now being provided by Surrey to help you do just that. Connecting to the city will be much easier with apps allowing you to learn about public art or request city services.
Recently, Surrey came out with a new app from SeeClickFix meant to encourage citizens to become more active in their community. Created to service non-emergency problems, the mobile citizen service request app allows users to record an issue they find on their phone and report that directly to the city. More than just engaging residents, this app will also increase the efficiency of the city’s workforce, as less time and effort will be used to locate issues around the city that nearby residents already know about.
Meant to connect users to public art within the City Centre, the ArtWalk app uses GPS and Google maps to connect to one of eleven art installations and provide videos and pictures to help you discover new information about a piece of public art.
The Go Surrey app is there to help both residents and visitors find activities to do in the City of Surrey. In addition to providing a map of Surrey’s cultural and recreational facilities, there is also a list of upcoming events being hosted at those facilities.
For those who can’t remember if it’s garbage or recycling week, there is the my-waste app. The app provides a collection schedule, collection day reminders and a list of what the city will accept in its bins.
The City of Surrey has also created an app for those who have registered with the Planning and Development Department. The building inspection app allows users to view their building permits, building inspections associated with the permits, and request building inspections.
