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.
St. Lucie HOME Consortium Invites Treasure Coast Residents, Non-Profits to Take Part in Community Needs Survey
The St. Lucie HOME Consortium invites residents and non-profits located on the Treasure Coast to participate in a community needs survey to gather information from the public on needed community facilities and services in Indian River, St. Lucie and Martin counties.
The information will be used to establish recommendations in the Consolidated Plan and the First Year Action Plan to be submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The survey links can be found at www.slchousing.org and will be available through July 24.
In June of 2006, the unincorporated areas of St. Lucie, Martin, and Indian River counties came together to form the St. Lucie HOME Consortium, with St. Lucie County as the lead agency. This partnership has brought federal funding from the HUD HOME Investment Partnerships Program to these three areas which would have otherwise been unavailable due to population size. Each year the Consortium is required to submit an annual action plan which identifies priorities and strategies to be undertaken utilizing HOME funding for the next fiscal year. Every five years the Consolidated Plan is required to be submitted and identifies needs and priorities to be addressed over the upcoming five-year program cycle.
