About this app

Simplicity is your city's official app to deliver important alerts to your smartphone in real time. Never miss essential community updates, events, emergency notifications, and more.

Only official trusted organizations that have been verified could publish announcements and events in the Simplicity app. Examples: your city hall, police & fire departments, school district, library, non-profit organizations, and public transit.

You can adjust your notification preferences to get alerted only on topics that interest you.

Get involved by exploring upcoming local events.

Emergency alerts will be sent to you regardless of your notification preferences, as long as notifications are enabled.

Recibe actualizaciones de tu ciudad en Español.

As we roll out new app functionalities, individual cities might opt-in to add new features for their residents, such as:

• Pet Directory
• Submit Feedback
• Community Fund
• Spanish Translation

and more.
