Smart Cities Council Readiness Workshop

If you live or work in the City of Racine, we would love to have your invaluable input and energy in fashioning the future of Racine’s Smart Cities Initiatives.

As part of being a winner of the Smart Cities Council’s North American Readiness Challenge, the City of Racine will host national experts who will assist local government officials, residents, nonprofit organizations, and the corporate community in developing broad-based consensus for a 12-18-month implementation plan for the next stages of Racine’s Smart Cities Initiatives. Executives from the Smart Cities Council as well as innovative corporations will share best practices, case studies regarding public-private partnerships that have generated bottom-line results, and lessons learned from communities across the nation and around the world.
