Net Inclusion 2018 – Creating Intelligent Communities: Local Government Strategies in Action
- When: April 17, 2018
- Where: Cleveland Public Library – 2nd Floor, Room C
The Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) Institute in partnership with Ice Miller LLP will present on the efforts currently underway in Ohio to build Intelligent Communities and ultimately an Intelligent Ohio.
Community Strategies in Action – Dana McDaniel, Kyle Kridler, and Roberto Gallardo
What is an Intelligent Community and how does my city become one? This portion of the workshop, presented by the ICF Institute, will take a closer look at the Intelligent Community movement and three important indicators of community success:
- Knowledge Workforce
- Digital Equality
Following the overview, attendees will have the opportunity to take a closer look at their own communities through facilitated small group discussions focusing on each of these three key indicators. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of best practices in each area and ideas of how they can lead change in their city.
Progress at the Statehouse – Lindsay Miller and Greg Dunn, Ice Miller
Ice Miller will provide an overview regarding recent actions in the Ohio General Assembly related to broadband, as well as local initiatives. This discussion will include an overview of Ohio Revised Code section 4939 and its impact on small cell regulation and local control in Ohio. This session will also address two bills (H.B. 281 and H.B. 378) that, if passed, would provide funding for broadband expansion throughout the state, as well as any new legislative initiatives that develop in the months leading up to the workshop.
