Data and technology are transforming and redefining the cities we live in. Once industry led, local governments are now stepping up to harness this digital revolution to empower citizens. However, the increasing array of technology choices often make it difficult for municipalities to determine which smart city opportunities are best for their communities.

On April 19, join us for a FREE LSNetwork webinar that will help municipalities navigate the full potential of connected technology by exploring the benefits of developing a comprehensive smart city master plan. This is a proactive process for municipalities to identify their specific needs, unite stakeholders and outline a roadmap to achieve effective and beneficial deployment of these solutions.

We will be joined by Travis Peter, the Smart City and Innovation Manager for the City of St. Albert, Alberta, who will share his experience launching and leading St. Albert’s internationally renowned “Smart City” program. Recognized by the Intelligent Communities Forum as one of the world’s 21 Smartest Cities for 2018, St. Albert developed a dynamic smart city strategy that has become a model for other communities across Canada.
