Planning for Smart Cities initiatives will take Raleigh from a system of connected assets, such as monitoring devices and automated data
collection, to a system of efficient and safe technologically connected systems that interact with each other in service to the public. To
better leverage existing Smart Cities partnerships and projects that are already in planning or in place, the City will work with a consultant to
bring together and align City stakeholders on strategic priorities and Smart City strategy design. This effort will identify the top near-term
initiatives for investment as foundational elements for Smart City growth. Selected initiatives will demonstrate their impact by directly
impacting citizen life in key areas of need, being measurable, and by providing the infrastructure, talent and governance for future initiatives.

Bellevu WA

This proposal responds to Council Priority Advance implementation of the Smart City Strategy, including advanced transportation
technology and autonomous, connected, electric and shared vehicle technologies..under the High Quality Built and Natural Environment
target area. The fundamentals of this proposal were identified in the BellevueSmart Plan: Planning for a Smarter City, which Council
approved in 2017. This proposal consolidates the former 090.16NA Community Network Connectivity CIP proposal with 090.19NA, with a
revised title of Smart City Connectivity. The previously adopted proposal includes two major areas to support the vision on Smart City that
supports to Bellevue’s economic competitiveness brand: – 090.19NA (G-38): Expand public Wi-Fi in parks, community centers, housing
properties and business districts, which directly responds to Council’s vision, Bellevue is a smart citywith a clean, high-quality environment
and excellent and reliable infrastructure that supports our vibrant and growing city, including high-tech connectivity.- 090.16NA (G-93):
Provide resources to maintain the existing fiber optic infrastructure and address gaps and bottlenecks as opportunities arise while
modestly funding replacement of the fiber network. The fiber optic network is used to connect City facilities, the Intelligent Transportation
System and street light system and is a major component of the Connectivity and Transportation elements in the Smart City plan.


Develop feasibility study and master plan for Smart City efforts. Pursue grant opportunities. City received $7M grant from American Rescue
Plan Act that can be used to install broadband. The feasibility study will identify the scope of work, area of interest for fiber optic and public
wi-fi, etc.

Fremont CA

The City of Fremont, CA budgets $400,000 for Smart City Transportation Projects in its FY 2017/18 – 2021/22 Adopted Capital
Improvement Program. Smart city projects to deploy available innovative technologies to improve the management of existing and future traffic conditions and ensure safety for all road users.

Culver City

Scope of Services
The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to solicit information as the City of Culver City (City) seeks to partner with lighting and technology providers to develop innovative solutions as the City replaces a portion of its streetlight inventory. The City is seeking solutions that will improve lighting, eliminate potential blight by integrating small cell technology, security cameras, vehicle charging stations and provide additional smart city features that enhance quality of life in the City. The City is additionally requesting proposals that take into consideration a “dig once” approach, aligning with existing capital projects, including street infrastructure improvements and the municipal fiber network expansion, while leveraging existing City assets.

Broome County NY

Broome County seeking an innovative and well qualified team to develop the Innovation District Fiber Enhancement and Smart Cities Plan. Project includes development of a study outlining expansion of the open access fiber broadband network for strategic economic development and potential for integration of smart cities initiatives.

Broomfield CO

Improve the quality of life by enhancing and adding new City and County of Broomfield services to the community through the use and
access of unified high?speed connected technologies.

Newport City News

The City will pursue grant funding to support smart transportation system improvements, which may include smart kiosks, smart street lights, and traffic adaptive signal systems.

San Jose

This project provides funding to convert streetlights to energy-efficient Smart Light-Emitting Diode (LED) streetlights consistent with the Green Vision and Smart City Vision goals. Funding of $13 million is provided from the 2018 voter approved Measure T – Disaster Preparedness, Public Safety, and Infrastructure Bond (Measure T Bond) to help fund the conversion.

Fairfax VA

This project provides funding to convert over 2,600 electric streetlights that have older technology (high pressure sodium and mercury vapor lights) to light emitting diode (LED) technology. This project will reduce energy use, provide cost savings and enhance the safety and quality of the City’s street lighting. Some of the benefits of converting to LEDs include: – Better Light Quality: LED lights allow for colors to be seen more accurately and vividly, improving nighttime visibility. They also provide consistent light distribution across the entire roadway, improving safety. – Reduced Light Pollution: The City will follow the International Dark Sky Association specifications to minimize glare, light trespass and sky glow. – Ability to Integrate Smart City Technology: The LED lights will be installed with a 7-pin receptacle, which gives the City the ability to install smart city technology features in the future. – Longer Life: LED lights have a life span of 10-20 years which is 2-3 times longer than older technologies, which improves reliability. – Energy Savings: The conversion is projected to save the City over 1.1 million kWh of energy use annually (which is equivalent to powering 102 homes/year). – Carbon Emissions Reductions: The conversion is projected to reduce the city’s carbon footprint by 800 metric tons of CO2 annually. – Cost Savings: The conversion is projected to reduce the City’s energy bills by approximately $110,000/year. Since the LED street lights have a life span of 10-20 years, the conversion is projected to save the City $1.1 to $2.2 million on the City’s energy bills over the life of the LED lights

Coral Gables

The objective is to reduce energy consumption of city street lighting by replacing existing lamps and fixtures with light-emitting diode (LED) lamps and fixtures with smart controllers. This project will replace 583 streetlights owned by the City of Coral Gables. The strategy is to specify replacement of existing luminaire with LED luminaires with similar aesthetics and performance which would include installation, and allow interoperability with smart city technology such as Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and controllers.


In early 2016, the City of Tampa with as many as 40 letters of support from major public and private institutions, submitted an application for the U.S. DOT Smart Cities Initiative. The application included provisions for a downtown Autonomous Mobility Service. HART has taken the lead to identify, operate, and deploy this service to connect parking and transit while demonstrating safety through the use of autonomous and connected vehicle technology
