It’s using A.I. technology to proactively assess road conditions, replacing a time-consuming, labor-intensive process, and partnering with schools, community centers and others to extend Wi-Fi access to all students.
The city’s priority areas are Digital City Services, Economic Development and Education and Workforce Development. These will serve as the focus areas during the Readiness Workshop with the goal being consensus building and the development of action step
