A Smart Region is one that collaborates to improve people’s lives using data and technology for informed decision-making to address regional goals related to equity, safety, affordability, sustainability, resilience, economic vitality, and public health. This partnership of public agencies and academic institutions in the Portland metropolitan area has identified and prioritized regional initiatives, policies and pilots that cross jurisdictional boundaries and break down silos. Collaborating across public-sector, higher education, and private-sector entities by recognizing shared goals, leveraging bargaining power, and finding innovative solutions that improve  services will benefit the whole region now and in the future.

This partnership has produced a draft Regional Smart Cities Action Plan, which will be made public soon.
