The Growth Of Smart City Efforts In The Region In Advance Of The Next Smart City Summit

The Regional Smart Cities Initiative (RSCI) will officially launch at the April 25 Smart Cincy Summit.

Last fall, the City of Newport began a project to become the first Smart City in the Midwest, utilizing digital, communications and design technologies. Last month, the City of Cincinnati announced it was looking for partners and providers to begin its smart city plans.

The Regional Smart Cities Initiative (RSCI) was created to bring cohesiveness to these and other similar projects. It will officially launch at the Smart Cincy Summit, taking place April 25 at Union Hall in Cincinnati.
