Smart City Platform

Foundational elements of Louisville's Smart City

Turning Louisville into a Smart City requires government to enhance the capabilities of employees by empowering them with the technology and data tools they need to perform at the highest level possible. To accomplish this goal requires a modern government technology and data platform for them to use in their daily work.

In the short-term, our Smart City Platform will power better services for our residents and improve our operational efficiency. In the long-term, we believe this platform will support the majority of service delivery to residents.
