There is an obvious effort underway for any sized city to try and be smart, but it is not just to improve citizen well-being, it is also to compete for economic survival and relevancy. Population shift and growth will happen where places can manage it and provide the jobs needed to sustain it and being a smart city is a big step in getting there. How cities attack their problems will determine if they get labeled a smart city or not. Some will attack it one project at a time while others will look holistically to use technology to improve operations and citizen engagement. There will be mostly winners when cities try to be smart because it signals an effort to improve. The question is how to maximize the potential and assure success.
