We are excited to have welcomed more than 50 guests to our roundtable discussion on Sustainability, Mobility, Clean Water and Clean Air at Union Hall today, Wednesday, March 15.

“If you think about the very mechanisms that built our cities 100 years ago, it was building bridges and laying roads,” said Hamilton Mill Executive Director Chris Lawson, who explained that Smart Cities infrastructure is what we’ll use to create economic development 100-plus years from now. 

Sustainability and mobility are two of The Regional Smart Cities Initiative’s four pillars of smart planning, and understanding their importance is key to understanding why Smart Cities are our future.

“When we talk smart cities, people get excited,” said Zack Huhn, director of the Regional Smart Cities Initiative, “and then it gets chaotic because everybody has a different ideas about what it means.”  

The Regional Smart Cities Initiative is especially grateful to the Hamilton Mill, Hyperloop UC, and Pipeline H2O for attending and sharing their expertise. 

Today’s roundtable discussion is the final major event before the Smart Cincy Summit (April 25, Union Hall, Cincinnati). For more information, visit our event page.
