Download the New MyRichardson App

The city of Richardson recently unveiled a new app for your smartphone. The MyRichardson app allows residents an easy way to submit pictures of issues, as well as an event calendar and more.

“As the home of the Telecom Corridor® area, and as a focal point of the technology industry in the D/FW Metroplex, Richardson is proud to launch one of the first municipal mobile applications in the region,” said Richardson Mayor Bob Townsend. “The whole world is moving to mobile platforms, and our residents expect to be able to connect with us in that way as well. Because of that, we wanted to be among the municipal innovators in mobile applications, and we hope our residents fi nd it to be a useful tool and another reason to love living here.”

The app is available now as a free download in the iTunes and Android app stores.
