What is a Smarter City?
Technology plays a role in nearly every aspect of the modern urban lives of Nashvillians. But just using technology does not make a city smart...
A smarter city:
- Achieves goals and meets challenges of its community through the use of technology and data.
- Uses technology, digital communication and data to gain a better picture of needed services and to interact with the community to solve community issues.
- Uses technology and innovation to improve the lives of citizens by improving the services it provides to its residents.
- Ensures equitable and inclusive access to quality of life for all of its citizens.
In order to craft the vision and strategy for a smarter city, Mayor Barry convened the Connected Nashville Working group. This group investigated local plans and global solutions; consolidated and synthesized information collected; and developed a set of draft recommendations for a long-range strategy. We would like your feedback on these draft recommendations.
