Smart City Consulting Services - These 1 hour web sessions provide
overviews of 4 types of smart cities
Smart City Option A
Smart City Option A shares examples of constituent-led Smart City initiatives where people have self-organized to take the lead and co-design what they want to see in their Smart City then offer these solutions and project opportunities for private sector investors, government, and developers to invest in real estate, new infrastructure, and development programs that will succeed because the community has determined they want these changes to take effect. The expectation is re-investment to make the old new again, make smart use of data, people, trust networks, and creative solutions by engaging community members who know what they want and how to fix things.
The goal is sustainable Smart City solutions owned in partnership between constituents, third-party investors, and government who work in coalition to drive economic development in micro-communities, workforce development for skilled Smart City labor, and to create jobs creation in revitalization projects that increase city and regional property value.
