The American people have demanded a smart, sustainable, and inclusive city.
And with the election of Donald Trump, that demand is coming to life.
But it will take more than just a political victory to transform America’s cities.
This is a time for us to take the first step toward building a better, smarter, and more equitable America, and we need to start by understanding the challenges and opportunities ahead.
The smart city idea is a key part of this challenge.
A smart city will not just enable economic growth; it will help transform communities and shape our communities, our economy, and our futures.
Here are five questions to answer:1.
How will a smart metropolis be built?1.1 What is a smart urban district?2.

What is the difference between a smart local and a smart global?
Let’s start with the definition of a smart suburb.
A “smart” suburb is a place where people live, work, play, and play again.
In some sense, it’s the equivalent of a suburb, but in this context it includes both urban neighborhoods and rural and suburban areas.
In most U.S. metros, a smart suburban includes an average of 40,000 to 50,000 residents in an average-sized neighborhood, and it typically includes at least 20 percent more commercial and entertainment businesses than a typical citywide area.
In contrast, in most metros with an average population of 100,000, there are less than 30,000 residential units, and the rest are mostly rural.2.1 How does smart growth help the environment?2,2.2 What kinds of smart growth will be most important for our cities?3,3.1 Which smart growth areas will have the most impact?4,4.1 Will smart growth be the new normal in our cities by 2030?5,5.1 Who will be driving the growth?
We know that smart growth means a more vibrant, diverse, and creative city, but how will smart growth play a key role in shaping our cities for the next century?
A smart metropolises can help us define what kinds of growth we’re willing to embrace and what kind of communities we want to create.
