Smart Places are the neighbourhoods we live, work and learn in, parks and facilities we gather in and places we recreate in. They harness information, technology and infrastructure to support our community to flourish.
The Smart South Consortium was created to seek to position Southern Adelaide as a ‘Smart Region’ that fosters creative thinking, emergent technology, interactive data capture and innovative use of resources for the benefit of the community. A smart region allows people to flourish, supported by optimised infrastructure, information, and resources.
Through the Australian Government Smart Cities and Suburbs Program Round 2, the City of Marion was successful in matched funding for a “Smart Precinct Proposal” at Oaklands.
