"Columbus, OH has unveiled a playbook for other cities to learn how to become a smart city," reports Katie Pyzyk.

"In the Smart Columbus Playbook, the city offers articles, contracts, webinars, case studies and data for other city leaders to leverage and learn from when jumpstarting smart programs and initiatives," adds Pyzyk.

The city of Columbus won $50 million in highly competitive grant money from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Smart City Challenge in 2016.

The article has more details and links to more of Columbus' smart city plans.
