The Ford City of Tomorrow Challenge team is excited to announce the winners of the 2018 Miami-Dade City of Tomorrow Challenge!
Over the last two weeks, the City of Tomorrow Challenge has been reviewing over 130 Miami-Dade applications looking at ways to improve walking, driving, bussing, biking, parking, and even flying. Take a look at the 14 semi-finalists that made it through.
Miami-Dade facilitator blogs on how the City of Tomorrow Challenge in-person community workshop proved to be an effective way to reach residents of a city with different cultures and varying transportation needs.
No two cities are the same. Therefore, there is no fixed rule to go about planning a city. A right combination of knowledgeable planners/designers supported by experienced locals with meaningful stories can positively transform a city. Community involvement in the transformation of a city also creates an effective sense of inclusivity and belonging to the city.
I am thrilled to see the City of Tomorrow Challenge coming together here in Miami-Dade. It arrives at a perfect time as we look for innovative ways to improve mobility through the deployment of technology solutions that are sensitive to our community’s needs. The Challenge is a unique approach to solving the problems we work on daily. It will help us create a process to better understand the context of our neighborhoods to then match them with the appropriate mobility solution.
