Smart City Planning
Technology has always been linked to the evolution of cities. As the government considers the rapid acceleration of technological advances, it is worth imagining what the connected city of the future will look like – and the associated impact it will have on current and upcoming projects.
Forward-thinking communities are focused on integrating the Internet of Things (IoT) into their Smart City programs by creating a holistic strategy that includes linking these new systems to improve city operations and drive economic development. Fully connected smart cities are coming, and HR Green is helping cities prepare for their arrival by providing local leaders with best practices and strategic smart city planning services.
There is much enthusiasm about smart city development, but the actual implementation of smart projects creates a need for specific methodologies to assess community readiness, create alignment around a community Vision and develop an actionable, prioritized plan.
Strategic smart city planning will help you identify resources that can be leveraged and repurposed, identify key gaps and needs, and prioritize the opportunities to develop your community’s infrastructure and technology.
With the right smart city planning that involves key stakeholders and provides necessary funding, your community can become the next smart city.
