Taking advantage of its location in the Research Triangle, Cary is using its Town Hall campus to incubate smart city technologies via public/private partnerships. Even more impressive, it is working to create “Destination Centers” in underserved neighborhoods to encourage more jobs and more housing.

Cary will use the Council's Readiness Workshop to further advance several of its projects, including "One Cary." This initiative seeks to gain a 360-degree of the city and its citizens by creating a single core platform to promote data sharing between departments and with citizens.

“Making more data-driven decisions is integral to the future of Cary, not just within the function of the government but also for civic engagement and transparency,” says Cary Mayor Harold Weinbrecht. “The resources provided by the Readiness Challenge Grant will be a huge help in our effort to gain a 360-view of Cary and our citizens.”
