CORONA RECOGNIZED AS A 2019 DIGITAL CITIES SURVEY WINNER
CORONA, CA– The Center for Digital Government (CDG) has announced the City of Corona as one of the winners for the 2019 Digital Cities Survey, a nationwide survey that recognizes cities using technology to tackle social challenges, enhance cybersecurity, and improve transparency.
Now in its 19th year, the annual survey focuses on the top ten characteristics of a digital city: open, citizen-centric, collaborative, secure, staffed/supported, connected, efficient, resilient, innovative, with use of best practices. The survey is open to all U.S. cities and honors cities in five population classifications: 500,000 or more, 250,000 to 499,999; 125,000 to 249,999; 75,000 to 124,999 and fewer than 75,000. The City of Corona was ranked 6th place in the 125,000 to 249,999 population classification.
“Congratulations to this year’s Digital Cities winners, who are working to make their communities more secure, user-friendly, efficient and resilient,” said Teri Takai, executive director for CDG. “Their efforts are making technology a driver of better, smarter, more responsive government.”
“Corona has taken an innovative approach toward technology, community engagement, transparency, and collaboration,” said Mayor Jason Scott. “We are honored to be recognized on a national level as a Digital Cities Survey Winner for the second consecutive year.”
The top-10 ranked cities will be honored at an awards dinner during the National League of Cities’ annual conference in San Antonio, Texas, on November 21. Read more about the winners here.
