Scottsdale is seeking input to create a “Smart City” roadmap

Scottsdale is creating a “Smart City” roadmap to explore and identify ways that new technology could enhance the community’s quality of life. Safer roads, shorter commutes, reduced emissions, a more engaged and inclusive community and quicker emergency responses are just some of the potential short and long-term benefits.

Residents, businesses, and community stakeholders are invited to a workshop to learn more and provide ideas:

(See info below on the Smart City Youth Congress for high school students).

This event will bring together citizens, entrepreneurs, innovators, corporations, universities, students and city leaders for a smart city-focused workshop that will specifically identify citizens’ needs and personal challenges with the goal that some of those challenges could be improved with the use of next-generation technologies and deliver improved services to the citizens of Scottsdale.

Creating a Smart City strategic roadmap is among the City Council’s organizational priorities. The city has recently partnered with Think Big Partners to help create the plan. Think Big has recently helped create similar plans in Mesa, Arizona, and in Kansas City, Missouri.
