St. Lucie County Launches New Mobile App
Post Date: 2/22//2017
The St. Lucie County Board of County Commissioners has made it easier for residents to connect with county departments by creating the My St. Lucie mobile app – now available for free download through the Google Play and Apple stores.
The My St. Lucie app allows residents to easily submit requests for services; ask questions or request public records. Directly through the app, residents can take a photograph of a problem area such as a pothole or flooded street and send that image and location to St. Lucie County to be properly routed to the correct department for processing. After submitting requests, residents can use the mobile app to track the status of their request.
The My St. Lucie app also provides access to St. Lucie County’s social media posts and provides useful information about county events and programs.
For those that may not have a smart phone or don’t feel comfortable downloading the app, a web-based version of the mobile app is available to allow residents to submit requests through the county’s website.
Treasure Coast Tourism Agencies Invite Area Businesses to Participate in Regional Tourism Showcase May 20 at the Fenn Center
The Treasure Coast’s three tourism agencies are looking for any and all tourism-related businesses in the three-county area to participate in the first-ever “Treasure Coast Tourism Showcase” at the Havert L. Fenn Center on Saturday, May 20 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. by exhibiting their products and services. Exhibitor booths are just $50 for non-profit organizations and $100 for for-profit businesses. The event is free and open to the public.
The event is a regional effort to promote tourism on the Treasure Coast and educate area residents on all of the unique things to do and see in the region. Door prizes and a staycation packages will be given away to lucky winners.
The event is an extension of the tourism agencies’ programs related to National Travel and Tourism Week – a collective effort to promote the power of travel through customized events in communities nationwide. Communities across America celebrate each year to shine a light on what travel means to jobs, economic growth and personal well-being.
For the last three years, St. Lucie County’s tourism office and the St. Lucie County Chamber of Commerce have hosted this event and has successfully grown it year over year. This year, Indian River and Martin counties joined making the event larger and even more impactful.
“This event is a great way to kick off our staycation campaigns,” stated Charlotte Bireley, director of Tourism & Marketing for St. Lucie County. “Many of our local hoteliers and other tourism-related businesses indicate that a large part of their customer base is within the Treasure Coast market, so we want to capitalize on that. This event will encourage Treasure Coast residents to consider a staycation in a neighboring Treasure Coast county.”
The Treasure Coast tourism agencies frequently partner together to market the region.
“We have so much to celebrate in St. Lucie County and on the Treasure Coast. Year after year, more and more visitors are discovering what a great tourist destination we have,” stated St. Lucie County Commissioner Chris Dzadovsky who also serves as Chairman for the Tourist Development Council. “This event is an interactive, one-stop shop for tourist information – but geared to our local residents.”
The Tourism Showcase will feature displays and booth exhibits from tourism-related businesses such as hotels, restaurants, tour guides, attractions and more. Tourism-related businesses that are interested in participating as an exhibitor should contact the St. Lucie County Chamber of Commerce at 772-595-9999 or visit http://stluciechamber.org/rsvpmaker/3rd-annual-tourism-showcase-2017-05-20/.
