As those of you in the Public Works world likely know, National Public Works Week is May 20 – 26. This APWA-sponsored event is a celebration of all those who “provide and maintain the infrastructure and services collectively known as public works.”
Here at Lucity, we want to honor our friends who work in Public Works. We’re holding a contest of sorts, a way for you to show off your accomplishments and successes, and maybe win a little something in the process. Continue reading
Straight from the Esri newsroom….take a look at the innovative ways the Tuscaloosa County Emergency Management Agency has configured LucityAM and ArcGIS to help them plan for and react to severe weather.
Last week at our Annual Conference & Training (ACT) we introduced the Lucity Legacy Award and recognized three recipients during our Plenary Session. We’re so excited about the opportunity to recognize some members of the Lucity family, and we wanted to share some highlights with you.
The Lucity Legacy Award was developed to shine a light on individuals or organizations within the Lucity family who continually demonstrate a desire to raise the bar. The recipients of the Lucity Legacy Award are leaving an impact on their organizations, their teams, or their communities and we are proud to acknowledge and celebrate these accomplishments. Award recipients will be recognized annually at our Annual Conference & Training, and a plaque of recognition will hang at Lucity Headquarters.

Our final category in the Public Works Week contest pertained to the unusual or exciting things you (or your crews) might encounter as they’re in the field. We’ve all heard stories, right? Well this submission is quite the visual and probably involved quite a lot of cleanup time!
Join us in thanking this agency who made the most of a not-so-great situation! Continue reading
We love how many of you built days into your week to share your operations with citizens. What better way for them to learn what Public Works is all about? So many things in our daily lives are under your care and supervision and many of us take them for granted. This next honoree has big plans for celebrating today, May 20th. In fact, we received two submissions from this agency – what pride in their department!
If you have plans to celebrate and share your work with your citizens, send us your photos! We’d love to share them.
Join us in wishing this agency a Happy City Works Day!
We’re celebrating the Biggest Success of one of Lucity’s public works champions. The second day of our Public Works Week Contest highlights an accomplishment many years in the making, and actually involves two Lucity clients. Their devotion to their customers and the environment played a key role in this massive undertaking. You’ll all recognize and appreciate the amount of effort and dedication this goal must have presented. But this agency is always willing to rise to the occasion. Lucity Senior Implementation Specialist Matt Miner (@LucityMatt) says the City is “ready and willing to seek out, or even create, the best solution. They’re quick to adopt new processes when there is a promise of enhanced productivity.”
Join us in thanking and congratulating our friends in the Northwest for this amazing accomplishment! Continue reading
