Smart North Florida is breaking down silos and building bridges that bring the public, private and non-profit sectors together to serve our region. Unlocking, sharing and analyzing data helps people understand and tackle challenges.  We kicked off Ideafest in December to crowdsource ideas to improve our community. Now POLLapalooza is your opportunity to rank these ideas and set the stage for our first round of Hackathons. 

Which ideas wil best leverage data, technology and collaboration? Let us know and share the link across your network before POLLapalooza ends March 31.

Big cities, small towns, suburbs and rural areas are banding together to become communities where local governments can be more effective and efficient in responding to citizens’ needs and enriching their lives.  All it takes is the willingness to embrace new technologies, the power of data and the innovation that springs from collaboration.
