The Colorado Smart Cities Alliance is a statewide, multi-jurisdictional collaboration of public, private and academic sector leaders committed to accelerating the adoption of smart cities projects and initiatives in their respective communities. Brought together to collaborate for the benefit of the citizens and businesses of Colorado by enhancing quality of life through citizen-centered design and public policy and through the deployment of 21st century technology and infrastructure.

John Tolva is the CityFi lead in the creation and growth of this one-of-a-kind partnership. The Alliance launch event was supported by the Denver Metro Mayors Caucus, Denver Regional Council of Governments, Colorado Municipal League and Colorado Counties, Inc.

In its work, Denver South has realized the benefit of regional collaboration among the four cities and two counties it represents. By broadening this effort to include jurisdictions around the state, it aims to extend that benefit to all communities, regardless of size or location. In the process, we aim to improve the quality of life and economic opportunity of all Coloradans, and to further support the in- novation-focused brand of Colorado, creating great economic development and business attraction opportunities statewide.
