Chattanooga, TN used to be known as a factory town. The city was once so polluted that in 1969 the federal government declared it the most polluted in the nation, and Walter Cronkite famously billed it as “the dirtiest city in America.” Since then, Chattanooga has undergone a remarkable transformation that revitalized its economy and made it a regional hub of innovation. Chattanooga is now known as “Gig City” for world-class, lightning-fast internet access that is 200 times faster than average U.S. broadband speed.
Cary, North Carolina is a forward-thinking town located in the state’s thriving Research Triangle that is utilizing emerging technologies to improve the lives of citizens and put their growing community of 160,000 people on the map.
The centerpiece of KC’s smart city efforts—the two-mile downtown corridor—serves as a model for how public-private partnerships can be implemented in a way that truly serves the citizenry while still meeting practical requirements.
