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 International Airport to Unveil New Hanger at MRO Americas April 25
St. Lucie County officials will be unveiling the conceptual plans for the new 30,000-square-foot hanger to be built inside the Treasure Coast International Airport and Business Park at the MRO Americas trade show on Tuesday, April 25 at 3 p.m. Islamorada Beer Company’s North Brewery, which is located next to the Fort Pierce airport, will be part of the event, offering a chance to win a “Brewery Tour for Six.”
MRO Americas is the world’s largest trade show and gathering for aviation businesses and professionals, taking place at the Orange County Convention Center, April 25-27. St. Lucie County and the St. Lucie County Economic Development Council will be promoting the Treasure Coast International Airport and Business Park inside the Florida Pavilion, Booth 4203, throughout the event. The Orange County Convention Center’s South Concourse is located at 9899 International Drive, Orlando.
Ideally situated between Orlando and Miami on Florida’s east coast, the Treasure Coast International Airport and Businesses Park has received state and federal grants to build a $6 million hanger which will provide additional business opportunities inside the 3,600-acre aviation park.
Formerly known as the St. Lucie County International Airport (FAA Identifier: FPR), the airport is owned and operated by the St. Lucie County Board of County Commissioners. The general aviation airport houses 12 Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) businesses that employ roughly 1,300 people with a $50 million payroll. The Treasure Coast International Airport handles more than 160,000 operations annually with 22,000 clearing Customs each year.
St. Lucie County has invested more than $261 million in infrastructure at the airport with plenty of room for future expansion. Most recently, construction crews are finalizing a $2.1 million renovation project to the airport’s U.S. Customs and Border Protection Facility, originally built in 1979, to compliment the newly renovated terminal building, which was a $5 million project completed in 2012.
The Treasure Coast International Airport and Business Park has been experiencing a surge in activity and publicity. Twice in the past year, Air Force One has landed at and taken off from the airport with former President Obama vacationing in the area.
The airport has been named numerous times the top aviation-related Customs facility by FltPlan.com, the largest provider of flight planning services for corporate and business aircraft in the United States, based on pilot surveys.
Generating more than $155 million in annual economic activity, the Treasure Coast International Airport and Business Park is located at 3000 Curtis King Blvd. in Fort Pierce. Conveniently situated between Central Florida and South Florida, St. Lucie County is within a two hour drive of both Orlando and Miami with access to more than 14 million people.
