Johns Creek Releases Smartphone App Johns Creek has released a new "JC Now" smartphone app designed to provide emergency notifications from the City, along with access to interactive maps, news articles, council meeting agendas, social media and contact information. "Johns Creek is very tightly engaged with its public and vice versa. To keep that civic engagement strong, we need to continue to take advantage of technology that gives instant notification of major traffic issues, inclement weather, or other major events," says Senior Communications Manager Rosemary Taylor. The app was custom-built by the City's Geographic Information Systems team, using open-source technology. An earlier beta version of "JC Now" won 1st Place at the 2014 Esri International User Conference in San Diego. "JC Now" is available for both Apple and Android systems. The City of Johns Creek website (JohnsCreekGa.gov) includes a link for download.
