Because Even Box City has Pot Holes...

Imagine a city made of boxes, where the urban planners are eight years old. The result? A patchwork of candy-colored buildings and a water-slide plunging into Long Island Sound.

SeeClickFix helped bring this Box City to life this weekend at the kick-off of New Haven's International Festival of Arts & Ideas. The imaginative event helped teach children about the building and planning process. Aspiring architects and developers were required to obtain building and materials permits before they constructed their dream building and zoned it in one of New Haven's nine squares.

Since even imagined communities can use some improvements, A SeeClickFix kiosk was provided for attendees to report issues, in cities both real and fake. Let's hope Box City has a public works department.
