SeeClickFix Issues Map

Today we integrated onto the main page an interactive 'issues' map powered by SeeClickFix.  

SeeClickFix's goal is to allow members of a community to play an integral role in public services by routing neighborhood concerns  - like potholes and light outages - to the appropriate office or official within a local government.  Many local governments, including our neighbors in the District of Columbia, officially partner wth SeeClickFix and utilize their technology as official or integrated non-emergency 311 service requests or reports.  

Other governments, such as Montgomery County, monitor and respond to public issues submitted via SeeClickFix.  

Regardless of whether you prefer to utilize SeeClickFix or Montgomery County's official 311 service, we encourage you to submit your issues so that we can all benefit.

For good measure, we'll include the interactive map here as well:




On Launching

The Long Branch Sector community page was brought online in early March 2017.  One of the main reasons for starting this community page was the lack of news or information specific to the needs or issues within our neighborhoods.  

There are many great community bloggers, news sites, and Twitter feeds that address or highlight issues within the greater Silver Spring and Takoma Park area that occasionally address or mention something related to or affecting Long Branch (think JustUpThePike, Greater Greater Washington, Takoma Voice, etc.), but there's not much in the way of local, dedicated news and information for the residents of Long Branch.  

The intent behind this community site is not to be a daily news/blog site, but we do hope to highlight updates and general information related to bigger issues impacting our neighbors.  Though things have been off to a bit of a slow start, we're excited to try and lend a small voice to this great community.

Thanks and feel free to follow on Twitter @LongBranchMD!
