City of Darwin releases innovation strategy draft plan
January 29, 2019
The Darwin City Council has released its draft #SmartDarwin Strategy for public comment, in a bid to provide a blueprint for the city’s development as an innovation hub.
In its finished form, the strategy will provide a guide for how the City of Darwin interacts and collaborates with community, business and all levels of government.
“We are excited to have a strategy focused on smart technology and infrastructure to guide our investments and priorities going forward,” said Lord Mayor Kon Vatskalis.
“The current Switching on Darwin project which is being delivered in partnership with the Northern Territory and Australian Governments is just the first phase of our focus on smart technology to create efficiencies in our service delivery and provide improved data analysis. The #SmartDarwin Strategy sets the framework for City of Darwin to keep working in this way beyond Switching on Darwin.”
City of Darwin is seeking feedback from the community and key stakeholder groups on the strategy in its draft form before it goes to Council for endorsement.
