Smart Ideas for Smart Cities

Good ideas that make good cities great originate in different places. Sometimes they involve technology:  Smartphone APPs that reveal open parking spaces in real time or enable citizens to share issues that need  attention.  Often these ideas start simply and grow to scale. Frequently, they begin with individuals or within institutions.

Whatever their origins, good ideas that improve the quality of life in cities merit attention. From time to time, in the interest of sharing and sparking more creativity about improving city life, especially in Pittsburgh, our hometown, The Benter Foundation will feature a short video on this site that does just that.

We invite you to view our first video– a short video on real time parking guidance signage.
