The 3 C's of Smart Cities
Smart City conversations are gaining traction across the globe as stakeholders continue to consider next steps and ideas. When planning for the future, it is helpful to look at the four pillars of workable, livable cities: connectivity, mobility, security, and sustainability. In doing so, we like to consider the 3 C's of Smart City planning - connectivity, commerce, and culture.
Each of the C's plays a vital role in planning and implementing smart solutions. We will discuss the 3 C's at the Smart Cincy Summit that will launch Regional Smart Cities Initiative efforts in April 2017. More details coming soon.

Driverless vehicles, flying taxis, Hyperloop, drones and UAVs. These aren't just concepts anymore, technologists and forward thinking cities are looking to move rapidly as it relates creating mobility solutions that alleviate existing transportation disparities and infrastructure burdens.
Cyberphysical security. Public health and wellness. Environmental impact and change. Properly planning for, assessing, and mitigating risks is a primary focal point of any smart city or region. Bond ratings depend on it. Human lives depend on it. Government success stories depend on it.
This month, the focus of the caucus turns toward 'Smart Mobility,' which is timely as many federal agencies, state governments, and municipalities are trying to navigate the pathway to smart and connected transportation solutions.
With Moody’s indicating they will begin to factor cybersecurity and climate risks into bond ratings, it has become critical to build resilience into all phases of smart city planning.
