The White House Smart Cities program has issued a $75,000 grant to the city of Bellevue to design a way to monitor and study city vitals from one large platform, which would improve the way the city runs and interacts with its community members.
Bellevue has partnered with CH2M engineering and Kansas City, Missouri to innovate and come up with the blueprint that will allow the city to gather and manage this information from several departments within the city.
