A city's ability to generate innovative ideas that solve major challenges and improve city life depends on its ability to find innovative new ways to get work done. The City’s Innovation Division embraces new technologies and infrastructure models to strengthen local democracy, promote efficiency and effectiveness in government, and promote the local innovation economy. Take a look at some of our featured projects, progressive programs and past accomplishments.
