Examples

A resident notices that a portion of a main roadway on a busy street in Fredericton has fallen in; creating what appears to be a large hole in the road. Pulling over to the side of the road, the resident takes a short video clip of drivers navigating around the hole and a few photos to highlight the road condition and notifies the City of Fredericton.

City staff is alerted of a potentially dangerous situation for residents that need to be treated as a high priority. Members of the public, including the driver, are notified that traffic will be rerouted and to avoid this area of the roadway. Meanwhile, staff and equipment have been dispatched to the scene.

The roadway is repaired and the public, including the resident that reported the issue, are thanked for their assistance in identifying a dangerous situation and proactively notifying the City of Fredericton.

Challenges

As we work toward a Digital Fredericton here are some of the current challenges we are facing. We’d love to hear from you on how we can best address these opportunities.

Contact us today with your transformative ideas!

  • It’s important for the City of Fredericton to understand our customer base and profiles so that we can offer higher levels of targeted services. How could we easily collect this information?
  • We want to connect people, places and things as well as collect data. Besides using cell networks, how could we do that?
  • City staff travel to pools to collect chlorine readings. How could we use technology to collect chlorine readings and show trends?
  • Transit is a valuable service for citizens. How can we gather data that can tell us things like how many people ride the bus and what areas in Fredericton use transit services more than others?
  • The City of Fredericton was an early adopter of open data. How can it best be combined with other data sources to highlight problems that, if addressed, could help our community?
  • How can we enhance our services to make them more friendly for those with challenges?
  • Garbage trucks travel the streets of Fredericton each week. What data should they collect or what services could they provide in addition to garbage collection?
  • How do we increase diversion from the landfill?
  • How do we easily, quickly and widely spread updates on service disruptions/interruptions to citizens?
