Columbus has been selected as the Intelligent Community of the Year by the Intelligent Community Forum (ICF), at its annual summit in Toronto, Canada.
The designation is awarded to the community that best creates inclusive economic opportunity and improves competitiveness through the use of broadband and information technology to innovate, collaborate, attract investment, improve the delivery of government services and raise the quality of life for its citizens.
The 2015 ICF focus is urban and regional planning and its impact on the way people live, work and create in their cities and towns. ICF praised Columbus for programs such as TechColumbus, the cultural revitalization of the East Franklinton neighborhood, initiatives to make higher education more accessible for low income residents and for its regional approach to economic development.
Columbus has reached the finals of the Intelligent Community Awards program for three consecutive years.
