What does it mean to be a “Smart City?”

A Smart City recognizes the opportunity for information and technology as a tool to provide services to all its citizens: including accessibility, affordability, choices, coordination, and efficiency. As the State Capital of California, Sacramento is the state’s eighth largest city and hub of the 2.2 million region. Drawing on its unique history as the confluence of forces, as both the birthplace of the Gold Rush and transcontinental railroad, Sacramento has also consistently been rated one of the most diverse cities in America. California’s Capitol city is uniquely positioned to test, advance, and use emerging technology to better understand and serve the needs of its citizens.
