16-week smart city program seeks resident-driven analytics
By Terrance Thornton | Scottsdale Independent
The Scottsdale Economic Development Department is spearheading an effort to usher the next generation of municipal operations: The smart city.
In unanimous fashion, Scottsdale City Council Nov. 12 approved the acceptance of two grants — one from the Industrial Development Authority, the other from the Arizona Institute for Digital Progress — to fund a 16-week effort in partnership with Kansas City-based, Think Big Partners.
In all, the total grant is $50,000 and will provide funding for citizen-input-gathering efforts including an open house tentatively scheduled for early December at the Mustang Library, 10101 N. 90th St.
