Ever see some problem around the city and want it fixed? Maybe it’s a pothole or a burnt out street light or even a broken sidewalk. There’s a new feature on Broken Sidewalk that allows you to report the non-emergency problems you see around the Louisville Metro area and view the problems others have found as well.

You will notice a new tab at the top of the page to the right of the “Map” tab. Just click See.Click.Fix and a page with a map of Louisville and existing problems will appear. We have partnered with See.Click.Fix to provide this service on the Broken Sidewalk web site and you can add your own problem by double clicking on the spot on the map where you’re problem is located.

You can use this new feature without leaving Broken Sidewalk and hopefully draw attention to some of the small problems around the Louisville area. See.Click.Fix was created by a group in New Haven, CT and has been used by the New York Times, the Boston Tribune, the San Francisco Chronicle, and the New Haven Independent among others.

  1. Will the problems reported here be monitored by Metro Gov’t? If not, isn’t it just easier to call MetroCall?

  2. Brilliant. An excellent public service.

    Whether or not this is integrated with MetroCall, this is transparent and provides for community discussion over the suggestions, something the Louisville government website doesn’t provide, but should.

    Of course, anything added to the map should be reported to MetroCall as well.

  3. Metro Louisville does currently monitor the results of See Click Fix, so it’s just one additional tool along with calling 311 to report problems seen around Louisville.

  4. Thanks for clearing that up, Branden. It’s wonderful that such coordination is happening here.

    Now, if we could only get our Metro Council members to participate in local blogs and discussion boards.
