Smart Columbus Dialogue
Mar28
Time: 5:30 p.m.
Date: March 28, 2017
Location: Page Hall, Room 130

The John Glenn College of Public Affairs is hosting a discussion forum to explore the accomplishments of Smart Columbus and what lies ahead.

To win the $50 million Smart Cities Challenge from the U.S. Department of Transportation, Columbus put forward an impressive holistic vision for how technology can help all its residents. But now the real challenge for Columbus will be implementing the plan that calls for:

  • Improve access to jobs through expanded mobility options in major job centers
  • Compete globally through smart logistics
  • Connect Columbus residents to safe, reliable transportation that can be accessed by all
  • Better connect our visitors to transportation options
  • Develop a more environmentally-sustainable transportation system

The anticipated outcome is for Columbus to become the nation’s epicenter for intelligent transportation systems research to improve safety, enhance mobility, create ladders of opportunity for those who may have been left behind in the past, and address climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Speakers:
Ned Hill, Moderator, Professor John Glenn College of Public Affairs
Aparna Dial, Deputy Director, Department of Public Service, City of Columbus; Program Manager, Smart Columbus

The event will be streamed via Facebook Live on the Glenn College Facebook page. The room will be equipped with a camera and microphones so the online audience can listen and participate remotely.
