Georgia Smart Community Growth Workshop


Are you interested in Smart Communities? Would you like to see how your city/county/community/ organization can get involved? Join us for the Georgia Smart Communities Growth Workshop on Friday, March 29, 2019.

Panelists from Georgia Tech, ATDC, ULI Atlanta, AARP, and GENERATOR will discuss how Smart Cities can drive economic development. The inaugural Georgia Smart Communities Challenge winners along with corresponding Georgia Tech researchers will present their current project status and answer your questions.
