The Town of Pla­cen­tia is the first in the area to re­lease an app for the com­mu­nity.

The town launched the Pla­cen­tia App at the Pla­cen­tia Bay Cul­tural Arts Cen­tre May 12. The app is meant to serve as a mo­bile event cal­en­dar, as well as a source of in­for­ma­tion for res­i­dents and vis­i­tors.

In­cluded in the app are in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing events, at­trac­tions, places to stay, things to do, and ad­vi­sories. App users will have ac­cess to con­tact in­for­ma­tion for town coun­cil mem­bers and staff, as well as a busi­ness di­rec­tory.

“Our new app is one part of our com­mit­ment to im­prove com­mu­ni­ca­tions with our res­i­dents and tourists com­ing to our town,” said Mayor Wayne Power.

The app will pro­vide users with in­stant no­ti­fi­ca­tions to their smart phone when any­thing of note hap­pens in the town. Weekly app main­te­nance and up­dates are sched­uled as the town changes the over­all de­sign, or find new ways to con­nect with users. The app is avail­able for free on both the Ap­ple App Store, and Google Play Store.
