A collaboration sprouted throughout Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana is beginning to gain attention. The Regional Smart Cities Initiative is adding cohesiveness to smart city conversations and helping to develop an agile planning architecture to encourage smart, regional growth in collaboration with stakeholders worldwide. Leaders of the initiative are working with international bodies to create the first sets of municipal smart city standards, and are hoping to support the mission of democratizing smart planning.
Did I mention that we are centrally located between other major innovations hubs?
