Cities across the world are building new digital tools to help their citizens easily access services, information and opportunities to participate. In 2016, we want to build new digital services for citizens in Guelph.
Here are a few common examples of digital services:
Guelph is building myGuelph, a digital one-stop-shop for interacting with the City.
Here is a snapshot of the project as it stands.
Please help us make sure that myGuelph fits your needs. Tell us:
What digital City services would make your life easier or business better?
Put another way, are there services or information from the City you’d prefer to get online or via mobile device?
Here's what we're going to do with your suggestions.
In 2016, we want to build up to two new digital services for citizens, while the big technical building blocks of myGuelph come together. Your ideas will all be considered for that list of possible new services. We want these new modules to be as responsive to our community's needs as possible. So please chime in with an idea and comment on the other suggestions you see. The more robust the conversation, the better we can meet your expectations.
How fast will this happen?
The full, neatly packaged myGuelph tool won't be ready until early in 2018. That's because it's a very, very big project! But we're rolling out individual pieces as they become ready, so that you, the user, can test them out and tell us what meets your needs and what doesn't. The feedback you provide will contribute directly to the building of 1-2 new digital services that we're promising to deliver in 2016.
