The Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) has announced that Lethbridge is one of the top 21 finalists with the potential to become the 2016 Intelligent Community of the Year. This announcement is the first stage in the ICF's annual Intelligent Community Awards cycle which considers nominations from nearly 400 communities, large and small, from around the world.
The ICF bases their decision on the six Intelligent Community indicators which include Broadband Connectivity, Knowledge Workforce, Digital Inclusion, Innovation, Marketing & Advocacy and Sustainability. This year, nominations were also considered in relation to an annual theme, from Revolution to Renaissance, which focuses on how communities plan for a future of economic, technological and environmental disruption.
The City of Lethbridge and Economic Development Lethbridge are working in partnership on this initiative and believe this announcement will build on the energy and interest that is being created within the community. Through 2015, along with the development and finalization of the Strategy Roadmap, focus is being placed on the release of open municipal data, the establishment of a connectivity working group and the implementation of a community-based awareness campaign.
