Los Angeles, CA
Hub Los Angeles, in partnership with
The LA Mayor’s Council on Innovation and Industry & The LA Chamber of Commerce Emerging Technology Center & City Innovation Group,
is pleased to announce...
An evening event to showcase local civic innovators & celebrate the launch of The City of Los Angeles’ NEW MyLA311 App
You are invited to attend the Civic Innovation Showcase and MyLA311 App Launch Party at Hub Los Angeles on April 3, from 7p-10p!
Featuring tech demonstrations for new apps and platforms, the Civic Innovation Showcase will highlight 7 Los Angeles area start-ups in the tech-for-change/civic innovation sector, all of whom are creating new applications designed to enhance our civic lives.
The event will feature the launch of the NEW MyLA311 app and attendees will be among the first to download the app at the event. This app will put LA at the forefront of open government and put the government-- literally-- in the hands of its people. MyLA311 provides convenient access to the most popular city services.
With this app, citizens can use their smartphones to snap and submit photos of potholes, graffiti and other problems for the city to fix and clean up; to map the closest parks, libraries, fire and police stations, public pools, tennis courts, golf courses, parking lots, and more; and to pay LA Water and Power bills right from your mobile device. Designed by LA’s own 3Di Systems, MyLA311 also keeps you connected with everything going on in City Hall.
Join us at Hub Los Angeles on April 3rd for this important moment in LA’s civic history.
Tickets are $20 online; $25 at the door.
