Since the passage of Local Law 11 of 2012, New York City’s data has created fertile ground for the development of tools and curriculum. Linking these three - data, tools, and curriculum - into basic course work would help empower all New Yorkers to create smarter communities. Working with local organizations, a Smarter Communities Academy would interlace data, tools, and curriculum to teach and empower elected officials, their staff, community boards, community groups, and individuals to build safer, smarter, and interconnected communities.
