Posted: June 8, 2017

Those leading the charge for the Smart Columbus transportation initiative have plenty of work to do over the next three years, and they think they have the perfect place to get the job done.

Housed in a former Franklinton shoe factory that was converted into the Idea Foundry a few years ago, Smart Columbus staff and partners are working in an environment designed to foster open communication and collaboration. Such an approach is key as a joint venture led by the city of Columbus and the Columbus Partnership tackles the task of meeting the ambitious goals set forth in the $40 million federal Smart City Challenge award won by the city in June 2016. An additional $10 million comes from Paul G. Allen’s Vulcan Inc.
