The City of San Antonio and its partners are working closely together to address the future opportunities and challenges our community faces as our area is on path to grow over 1.0 million more people by the year 2040. As San Antonio becomes a global leader for civic innovation, we will transform people's lives and achieve the vision of prosperity for our diverse, vibrant, and historic community. The City’s Smart vision (SmartSA) focuses on building a connected, inclusive, and resilient community that supports a high quality of life for San Antonio.

Becoming a “smart city” means disrupting the city’s service business model ourselves, on purpose, before we are disrupted by others. By leveraging next generation technologies, data-driven analytics, customer experience focused design, public/private partnerships, and new digital leadership talent to drive radical improvements in how government and utilities serve our community, we will realize concrete benefits for our residents in digital connectivity, mobility, community engagement, safety, digital access to services, sustainability, and economic opportunity.
